Year-End Retailer Inventory Replenishment Approved

At the request of wine and liquor wholesalers, the Liquor Authority has approved relief from posted price schedules to facilitate year-end retailer inventory replenishment. While traditionally viewed as a benefit for off-premises licensees, this authorization allows all licensees with sufficient time to restock their liquor and wine inventories using wholesalers’ traditionally lower December prices.

Wholesalers of liquor & wine may accept retailer orders until 6:00 pm on Thursday, January 4, 2024 utilizing December 2023 prices. All orders placed from Friday, December 29, 2023 until 6:00 pm on Thursday, January 4, 2024 at December 2023 prices must be delivered to retailers no later than January 9, 2024 (Thursday, January 11, 2024 for licensees located North of Westchester County).
