My thoughts on your thought...
My guess would be that they (Moss) do not actually carry these things 
but obtain them, on demand, for the silly people who do not bother to 
shop around a bit for the easy-to-get things. That is, things like 
batteries are a pain to deal with (warehousing, shipping, etc.) so I 
suspect that they simply are pricing the items in such a way that they 
are able to say that they have them yet they will seldom (if ever) 
actually have to supply them.
Happy New Year, from a pragmatist.
