One of my pet peeves has now migrated to Spanish. To me a “Sorry, Out of Stock” tag is a terrible waste of space and merchandising opportunity. As customer I can pretty well see the item is out of stock. How about cross- or up-selling me to a nearby substitute? How about offering me a special discount on the restocked item if I return to purchase it later? And if you insist upon placing such tags, and speaking in the local tongue, how about Polish “Out of Stock” tags in my Polish neighborhood? Let’s not discriminate against Poles or other minorities, okay? CLICK the thumbnail to read the tag in English.
