Brick to: TheWeek online store powered by MentalFloss

With a bunch of email fanfare, TheWeek (The Week) magazine brings you to its online store, powered by Mental Floss.  Selecting from its home page images of items and prices, I clicked on six items I had an interest in.  After reaching the detail pages for each item, fully FIVE OF THE SIX ITEMS WERE OUT OF STOCK.  To discover that they were out of stock, you had to click on more details.  Why are out-of-stock items not identified upfront in the catalog pages?  Why do they appear on the site at all?

My response: I waved "bye bye" to the site for good!
