Why can't I order things that are backordered?

I bought some cabinet frames for my laundry room a while back but they didn't have the doors in stock at my local store. The employee told me that I could call back the following week to order them. Well, I've been trying that for weeks as well as trying to order them online but I always get a message that delivery options aren't available for my zip code and they're not available at my local store.

What hot garbage is this, ikea? Every other retailer in the world has a system to order items that are back ordered so we can get in line and receive them in order when they do become available. Why does Ikea force me to keep checking everyday to see if they're in stock? This is so frustrating.
