There are numerous message boards on Reddit as well as Discord servers of gamers updating each other when they find stock or when a retailer releases more PS5 consoles. Join in these message boards and servers to stay up to date, without having to continuously check the retailers' websites all day.

It may also be worth contacting your local retailer in case they have more information on when the store expects to have more stock.
