    Re: What did you pass up today? Autumn '12

    Passed up (1) 2011 WLW, (1) 2011 GTS, and (1) 2010 GTS all at the same store. The owner claimed he would offer me a "deal" by selling me all three for $440 cash. No thank you.

    Stating the obvious, I'm thinking that is more of a "deal" for him than you... ridiculous! You just have to laugh at what some of these stores are charging for BTAC and PVW.

    The store owner was ridiculous. It was so comical. He was looking in the state price book right in front of me, where the current versions are listed for $70.97/each. I sarcastically, told him that I had to think about it. I don't think he even picked up on the sarcasm.

    There is some just punishment for that sort of thing but what's crossing my mind is not something I wish to put in print.

    That is just ridiculous. If you want to gauge people on a price for a bottle whatever but to add a requirement to buy something else.

    Fortunately the BTAC's are pretty much the same year over year, so I have a fair number of them from prior years and feel NO need to chase them. If I stumble on to one at a goosd price, I'll bite. Otherwise, I just keep on truckin' -- and actively search out the truly limited offerings like 4R LE's, PHC's, etc.

    How else are they going to get rid of the crap the distributor forced them to buy in order to get their allotment of the BTAC?

    You have to wonder if a few of these shops won't think twice next year before pushing for more BTAC, PHC etc. When it gets to the point of having to spike sales just to receive a single case, it gets to the point of wasting capital and taking a loss on the overall.
