CT Regulatory News: Product Delivery Extension Approved Due to Snow

From the Office of John Suchy, Division Director of Liquor Controldcpsealnew

PRODUCT DELIVERY EXTENSION APPROVED BY THE DEPARTMENT OF CONSUMER PROTECTION

THIRTY DAY PAYMENT EXTENDED THREE DAYS

January 26, 2015

Due to the impending winter storm, it is likely that there will be power outages, snow drifting, street and/or highway closings which will adversely impact the flow of goods and services to liquor retailers for a portion of this week.

The department is approving an extension of all alcoholic liquor products, through February 4, 2015 as as long as the product was ordered by the end of day on January 31, 2015.

In addition, because of the storm and its anticipated aftermath, it may be difficult for  wholesalers and retailers alike to comply with the thirty (30) day requirement on the payment of outstanding liquor bills. Roads may be impassable, outages may occur, wholesaler staffs or retailers may not be open due to the storm. Wholesalers may extend by three (3) days the “due date” for bills which become due Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday of this week.

The department has waived any regulatory restrictions that might otherwise prevent wholesalers from delivering such orders during this period.
