Philadelphia, PA - The Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board is opening limited sales of wine and spirits via their website. They will be processing a controlled number of orders daily with plans to boost capacity as capacity increases.
Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board Resumes Limited E-commerce Sales and Deliveries
Customers are going to be restricted to six bottles per transaction from a limited catalog of around 1,000 top-selling wines and spirits. All purchases must be shipped to a home or non-store addresses, and only one order per address per day.
“We understand the public wants to have access to wines and spirits during these unprecedented times, but we have a responsibility to mitigate community spread of this virus to every extent possible and make sure our employees and our customers are as safe as they can be,” said Board Chairman Tim Holden.
Access to www.FineWineAndGoodSpirits.com “Opens In A New Window” is going to be a randomized process to prevent overpowering the site with high traffic and cut down on abuse.
“We expect consumer interest and site traffic to exceed what we’ll be able to fulfill, at least initially, so we ask that customers be patient and understand that the PLCB Is doing the best it can under extraordinary circumstances to balance consumer demand and public health,” said Holden.
The PLCB is not looking at reopening stores at this stage. However, the agency is monitoring the health crisis in consultation with the Wolf Administration as well as public health officials.
