Well it's good for the fish to get a break that go to the nasty local shops like the one in my town. This place goes through a lot meds as well.... Tankfully there are really good shops a short drive away Sorry don't mean to trash my lfs but it is sad and hopefully improves soon

Northern KY here, closer to Cincinnati by about thirty minutes south of cinci.
Four LFS for me but the one i trust most is Jack's Pets. Both managers are very knowledgable about fish.
The other LFS in my city are
World of pets (where i think the snail came from)
Planet pet (really haven't been in to look at their stock yet)
20 gal tall - 6 rasbora het, 7 rummy tetras, 2 glowlight tetras, 2 oto cats, 1 zebra nerite, 1 assassin snail, Planted tank.
10 gal tank - java moss carpet, 1 piece of spider wood with java moss and 1 young crypto plant attached to it, 1 CT Male betta - Basara, cherry shrimp, and olive nerite
5 gallon Betta tank - planted tank and 1 moss ball, Helios (HM BETTA MALE), 1 endlers male, 1 assassin snail

My lfs always has very healthy stock, but it stays the same for the most part unfortunately because not many people around here are really deep into the hobby. He tends to keep more.... higher level fish I'll say. Meaning most casual fishkeepers have no freaking idea what me and him are talking about if they happen to hear part of our conversation.Coastie-to-be... hopefully.

I have noticed that when a fish starts making its debut in one place, it seems to pop up all over the place.
Thread Fin Rainbow fish - 4 different stores
SailFin Pleco - 2 Stores
Sterbai Cory - 2 stores
Clown Loach - 3 stores
Hard to Find fish:
Cardinal Tetras (running low or poor quality)
Ghost Shrimp (always low stock)
American Flag Fish

Petsmart always has good December stocking levels. Just be sure to quarantine properly.

Great idea Kings...
It also helps to ask the LFS on their normal rotation.
Petco near me will bring in about 4 new species once a month pending sales on other fish/requests of customers.
