They carry ________ but not _________?!

I was perplexed when I moved to my new city a month ago and discovered most grocery stores carried all kinds of more "exotic" ingredients (various peppers, nori, grind-your-own peanut butter) but no baby bok choy! They have regular bok choy, and I'm left wondering why its younger cousin is left out.

Has anyone else had a similar experience, where a grocery store didn't have something you assumed would be there?
