“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 Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board opened limited sales of wine and spirits on April 1st, via their website and did announce that they will be processing a controlled number of orders daily with plans to boost capacity as capacity increases.
Access to www.FineWineAndGoodSpirits.com “Opens In A New Window” is a randomized process to prevent overpowering the site with high traffic and cut down on abuse. 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.
