    Party Source Shipping

    Just got an email from TPS that they are no longer shipping alcohol of any sort. Seeing as they have built a large part if their business doing so, I would think this will have a drastic impact on them.

    Well that is a bummer, they were always good for a few things around the holidays.

    Best regards, Tony

    Moving into a new phase perhaps.

    It is pretty amazing it lasted as long as it did as they were the only ones in KY that shipped period as far as I knew.TPS sent me a great many of things including quite a few of their PS bottles,I wonder what was the final straw that broke the camels back?

    Well at least they are still allowed to operate. The Whiskey Place in Brooklyn got completely shut down for shipping indiscriminately to all 50 states, even though NY is not a very restrictive state. I'm no lawyer, but couldn't TPS lose their liquor license if they were found to be in violation of the law? That would have been even worse, so it seems to me they got off light. FWIW I know nothing of the specifics of the TPS situation.

    And they were totally illegal the entire time. Governor appointed a new head of ABC a few months ago, and perhaps that is the reason something was finally done. Lots of other retailers took a look at what they were doing, and the general conclusion was "not legal." They are lucky to be allowed to keep their license.

    I think I did have an order delivered from them once, but I usually enjoy the day trip out to the store and just order for pickup or shop while I'm there. Maybe this will increase the likelihood of getting the occasional special bottle there since they always disappear so fast.

    From what I heard they were facing that exact situation if they didn't stop immediately.
