Many antiques dealers source directly from antique importers, import furniture themselves, and/or purchase at antiques fairs like Brimfield (Massachusetts) and Roundtop (Texas). Both of these fairs occur in the summer (Roundtop this weekend), so dealers are likely to be clearing out inventory in late spring/early summer. Also, ask if the store has an email list--many times they will email you before a new container arrives, in the event of sales, etc.
