    All retailers "have the ability to grab product or cancel product", its called writing a PO or requesting a RTV. If you really follow this retailer like I do (as well as 6 others) DKS stores are sitting on carry over merchandise from 2011 in cold weather at the store level. Black friday promo at DKS internet was 40% off of carryover outerwear. If you walk any DKS store, its additional POS off of 2011 cold weather markdowns. You can cancel all of the goods you want, but its not going to help sales. also if you look at black friday, this year vs last yr not a very compelling story to drive business into stores at 12am. I think Macys, Walmart, Target, Best Buy, Kohls, and Toy R Us were the winners driving traffic through effective marketing tools...not just opening up at 12am
