'available in stock'?


Do you think either ‘available’ or ‘in stock’ is redundant in this sentence?

‘We have the products available in stock.’

Thank you very much.

Use one or the other, but not both.

Actually, it’s not redundant. “We have the products available,” can mean that they either have them in stock or can quickly get them from a supplier. “We have the products available in stock,” sounds redundant, but it’s actually understood to mean that the products are in their own warehouse and not in somebody else’s warehouse, so there is no time delay to get them.

If you wanted to remove absolutely ALL redundancy from the sentence, you would have to shorten it to just, “We have the products.” Of course, no one in retailing would do that.
