OP here. Thank you so much for all your kind and supportive words. I seem to be emotional over everything lately. Thank goodness I have such a supportive husband. I know everything happens for a reason, and we will find the perfect crib. Obviously that one wasn't meant to be.

Tell the manager that they should put away the crib if they don't still sell it.
You should've spoken to the manager! They could've at least helped you out with similar options or maybe even the actual display crib.
The store actually CANNOT sell the crib, even though they'd make money on it. Unfortunately, as soon as they set up the crib, it's a liability to sell it because: 1) You don't know if the person who assembled it together actually assembled it correctly. 2) Once that model goes out on the display floor, customers do whatever the heck they want to it - I've seen them "test out" the crib by putting their child in it when it's up on a steel shelf, where it's INCREDIBLY unsafe, as well as seen them take it apart to see how it fits together. 3) You don't know how long the model has been out on the shelf. It could have been weeks, months, or years. Things could get lost. 4) You don't know if it's missing parts, or if it was assembled BECAUSE it was missing parts, simply so they could have a display because of said missing parts. These are just examples, but there are SO MANY FACTORS that people don't understand unless they're working from a retail perspective. Just things to keep in mind.
