I have a question on this state monopoly business we have here. A store buys a case of liquor from the distributor, who first purchased it from the state. At the time of purchase, the min shelf price per bottle was $50, so that's what the store puts it on the shelf for. 2 months later, the state raises the price to $55. The store still has 4 bottles left from its original order. Is the store allowed to raise the price of its remaining 4 bottles to the current min shelf price? Well, maybe 'allowed' isn't a good word, because they can sell it for however high the customers keep buying them for!
I've seen several stores do this, just wondering how shady it is.
