HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) — Starting Wednesday, the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board has resumed limited sales online, accepting a constrained amount of orders per day with plans to increase capacity.
Customers are limited to purchasing up to six bottles from a reduced catalog of around 1,000 ‘top-selling’ wines and spirits.
All orders must be shipped to home or non-store addresses, and only one order per address will be fulfilled 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 in a release. “We believe that re-opening FineWineAndGoodSpirits.com in a controlled manner will allow us to provide access to consumers while also protecting our employees and consumers from unnecessary risk.”
Access to www.FineWineAndGoodSpirits.com will be randomized to avoid overwhelming website traffic and prevent order abuse.
The PLCB will be fulfilling orders from various facilities and is implementing facility sanitation, social distancing, and limiting the numbers of employees working in any one facility.
As order fulfillment capacity increases, the PLCB will consider increasing the number of orders it takes each day.
The PLCB is not considering reopening stores at this time but looks to continue monitoring the situation with recommendation from the Wolf Administration and health officials.
