    Definitely a local law, if true. In PA and in fact many stores in DE and NJ, will accept for returns any unopened bottles of alcohol.
    Right...also in Illinois you can return unopened bottles of alcohol from the store you bought, if that is the store's policy. I know that Binny's allows this but expect other stores here may not. And of course the first part that soonami states is absolutely true based on three tier. Though back in the day, I came across a few independent store operators that were willing to sell me items they certainly didn't acquire from a distributor and more like somebody's basement. Of course I turned them down .

    Re: Hypothetical PVW 23 trade

    In Massachusetts, most liquor stores will accept returns of unopened bottles, within reason. Most bottles these days have a decent tamper-proof seal.

    I'm sure they can refuse a return (bringing back that bottle of 25-year-old scotch because the wife didn't approve probably won't work unless you have a long and well-established relationship with the store).

    Catering and party hosting depends on buying extra bottles for back-up and returning them, though this usually involves commodity type stock (bottom- and mid-shelf bottles). Stores I've used for this won't take back wine or beer if chilled.

    I'm also sure that even with three-tier system, stock has occasionally appeared in stores that didn't come through the official distribution channel.

    That's what I was thinking...trade for the 5 JPS' and re-trade. That way you're still getting SW, but more of it

    I'd make that trade all day long

    Lot B is $50 around here, 4R SmB LE is $80ish

    I'd make that trade in a heartbeat. The LE2012 is going to be "the one that got away" for me this year. Just can't seem to find one anywhere.

    Hypothetical PVW 23 trade

    Hell yes. Lot B is released every 6 months. 4R LE only once - ever.

    Well, it will only be released once next year since VW announced the move to only one release a year. still, point taken.

    just not sure why a store would go for it unless they are price gouging the VW in which case they're probably gouging FR too, or they will next year.
