The reality of it here is a part is an hour away from any parts store in the city so there is very little need for a store to carry 100 hoses on the off chance they might need it. They order it from the warehouse in the morning, where there are a 1000 hoses and it arrives by lunch. I have ordered tons of parts at my local NAPA and VERY rarely can they not get it for me within and hour or so. And 99% of the people know exactly what part they want. It's just us weirdos that want to dig around the back looking at hoses.
