Anyone else still waiting on their Father's Day Nikkor lens?

Nikon had a Father's Day sale which included some nice lenses. I went to my local camera shop where I generally buy my Nikon gear, and asked about the Nikkor 24-70 F2.8E ED VR lens ($400 off list price). They said they were out of stock but could get one from Nikon within a week. Well four+ weeks later and I'm still waiting. Today the local shop called to say they'd been 2 days back and forth with Nikon on the phone enquiring about the back order. Nikon said maybe 2 more weeks. The local camera shop person said not good enough - customer was getting annoyed. She finally got to someone who said they'd pull one from another bigger order and ship it tomorrow. Maybe I'll get it next week.

My beef - why do they have sale like that when they have no inventory?

Anyone experience this?
