PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Your local Pennsylvania state store is about to reshuffle its line-up and it could save you a couple of bucks on your purchases.
Liquor Control Board spokeswoman Stacey Witalec says on March 1st the LCB will “delist” about a tenth of the inventory of a typical large state store. The good news is those brands and products will be marked down to clearance prices until they are gone.
The not-so-great news is the products being dropped are the less popular items in the LCB’s line-up.
“We take a comprehensive look at our entire inventory every two years and do a large-scale delist. But we’re constantly re-evaluating the products we have on the shelf so that we can insure that we are bringing the best selection.”
The biggest category of products affected by this large-scale delist is vodka because Witalec says the state stores carry more varieties of vodka than any other wines or spirits.
In the coming months those products will be replaced by new ones. The old items will still be available by special order.
