" I'm sorry, Tom, this item is out of stock"..... Is this sentence grammatically incorrect(as I have used a comma after the name, instead of a full stop)? Some of the people I know are saying it is incorrect.I know it's a silly question, but I would like to confirm what I think.(I don't think the sentence is grammatically incorrect.)

It is correct, Adiy, because nouns of address are separated from the rest of the sentence by commas.

 

It would also be correct to end the first sentence after 'Tom' and start a new one.

 

 I'm sorry, Tom, this item is out of stock.

 I'm sorry, Tom. This item is out of stock.
