    I kept noticing it with Target… but when I went to the actual store where 85% of our wedding would shop – they had everything there.

    They seem to come back ‘in stock’ and go all the time there.

    It’s only happened with one BB&B item, and I’m not worried about it.

    It’s the “quantities limied, order now” on my Crate and Barrel that makes me wanna pull my hair out πŸ™‚

    Good luck!

    Yes, and it drove me crazy. I never knew stores change their items so much!

    We went to target a couple weeks ago and wanted to register for a digital camera. The guy behind the counter actually told us not to bother with it until like a month before. That stock is always changing and you won’t know what will still be there later on. We ended up picking the newest model and updating when necessary.

    A good 1/2 of the items we registered for at Macys were out of stock as of yesterday. My shower isn’t for a few months though so I’m not going to worry about it until it gets closer.

    I had that at target. It was pretty annoying, but about once a week I’d go through it and make sure nothing was out of stock.

    But I love the store, and I think the prices are great, so I ended up registering there again for the baby. Now I’m back on checking every week!

    I am nervous about registering at Target for this reason. I have had issues with other peoples registries, and items not being in stock, for so many wedding/baby showers I’ve attended. I love the store so much though, and every time I go there I see so many cute things that I would want! So, I’m torn. I’m leaning towards BB&B and Macy’s just to keep it simple.

    Same issues at Target. Most of the stuff is in stores though. It goes in and out of stock. I just leave it. I’ll be getting a bunch of gift cards since I have to fly to/from my shower/wedding so I’ll just use the gift cards to buy the stuff that is out of stock.

    I’ve been having problems with all 3 of my registries. Items show up ONLINE only, when we registered in store. Then we went to return an duplicate gift at BB&B….a few of the items saying ONLINE only were actually in stock at the store!

    All of my items are currently available in-stores or online (or both). So I guess I should check every couple of weeks to make sure nothing has changed. I registered at Target, Macy’s and Sears. I hope it’s not going to be a problem πŸ™
