As John said, just a Mega store filled with all kinds of alcohol and party supplies. They have a very large bourbon selection, with a many private bottlings available. They also ship spirits (ie bourbon)..:grin:

Could you guys offer any examples of shipping costs? Preferably, cost to ship a single 750ml bottle.

Also, I noticed that they don't replace damaged items. I assume you all have had good luck with them?

Sorry to hassle, they don't allow you to check shipping costs without registering first.

Shipping is expensive for a single bottle, but not that much addition for a second, third, or sometime fourth depending on size and packaging. From my (very poor) memory, I was remembering $~20 for one bottle, $25 for two, and ~$28 for three. The lack of sales tax can off-set shipping for high end bottles.

A 4 bottle / 100 mile trip to me cost $25. They use double wall thickness shipping boxes and an insane amount of bubble wrap on each bottle
Safe passage to the consumer is obviously a high priority.

FedEx would have to purposely try to break a bottle the way TPS packages their shipments. You'll keep the boxes for future use.

Also....... $41 for 18 bottles shipped approx. 450 miles :yum:

The Party Source--TPS--and Jay Erisman are GREAT!!! Jay is available by phone and email to discuss what they have, etc. In my book he is "THE MAN".

If buy certain # bottles they give you a discount, and this, and no taxes, at least in GA, more than pays for shipping.

Before recent availability of Weller 12 in ATL TPS was my source: $48 for 1.75L; and $39 for 1.75 L of OWA.

Only problem: I buy too much from them, if that's a problem.:grin:

I am always surprised at how a a available Jay is for everyone. I will be sitting in the bourbon aisle and ask a clerk a question, they get Jay on the radio and he is right there. One of the reasons I always enjoy shopping there. I am pretty sure in the last 18 months I have financed a lot of the new construction. :) Being 8 minutes from my door to theirs is quite a problem on the bank account.

Point seconded on Jay. I sent an email after my initial visit, not soliciting or expecting a response. We went back and forth probably 3-4 times each just discussing bourbon like a thread would here.
