Surface Pro Release Day Stock Apparently Limited at Best Buy and Staples Stores

Earlier today I posted about the sold out and limited availability status of Microsoft’s brand new Surface Pro devices which just entered the market place today. After a series of phone calls to my local Best Buy and Staples stores it seems stock may have been quite limited for these physical retail locations.
If you read my earlier post on Surface Pro being sold out you know I did a web search and could not find a physical Surface Pro 128GB in any Best Buy store within a two hour drive of my location in Jacksonville, Florida. The 64GB model showed low stock in most locations.
I decided to call my local stores to see if I could learn anything more about the Surface Pro availability and sales.
Here are some of the pieces I have put together from talking to different sales clerks:
So it would seem stock was limited in store for some reason and there has been a lot of release day enquiries about the Surface Pro models. I am not sure what might have caused stock not to arrive to the stores except to assume that the supply chain is clogged up somehow.
Now these checks were for the stores in my area – have any of you checked out your own Best Buy or Staples to see what they have available? If you have please share those results in the comments below.
