I think that normally when dealing with volume and POS items (not ordered) the usual idea is to always have some available to be picked up by the customer that happens by. That doesn't' mean you have a hundred available at all times at every store, but say 2 to 4 and then if a store sells out, you can give a close by point to pick another up. Don't let the customer walk out empty handed without information on how to get one quick.
