That store went to shit 2-3 years ago when they sold to some guy with zero knowledge about owning a liquor store. It was the best in Portage/Dunning for a long time.


    Damn, you mean it's not a good idea to buy a business selling something that you know nothing about? :lol:

    Stopped by the Cardinal on Lincoln and Ainslie on my way home from work today and they had a bottle of Weller 12 for $199.99 behind the counter.


    I hope their distributor, Breakthrough Beverage, doesn't agree with their gouging and no longer sells them any more Weller 12.

    I'm seeing this more and more frequently and I get the feeling that the distributors either no longer care about these types of opportunistic pricing practices or that they're so busy focusing on expansion, they no longer have the resources to police them.

    The only reason why I said this is because they dole stuff like Weller 12 out like gold to independent retailers, which I'm sure you're aware of. Most single store operators may get three bottles, some one bottle, of highly allocated items, so they are already really controlling what they can get. If I was that guy, I wouldn't have that on display, but have it under the counter for when people inquire, which is how most of the trophy items are handled.

    Distilleries/wineries/wholesalers really dislike retailers and consumers who are making crazy markups. I know some CA wineries cut people from their mailing lists if they see any ads of people on the lists reselling for markups. Their products benefit from the high gray market pricing, but...

    Yeah for the limited supply that is made available, I just can't get mad at store owners for marking up prices for these bottles. Sucks for the consumer but what can you do.

    What I hate is when store owners are trying to rip off people and charging far higher than market value.
