The Department of Consumer Protection Liquor Control Division issued a statement due to the impact of the snow storm on Jan. 3, 2013.
“The department has received some calls, not many at all, about this issue as it relates to the projected weather and compliance with the 30-day credit terms. We have been informed that some wholesalers will not be open today and deliveries suspended due to weather.
The department will not pursue administrative action against wholesalers for delivering product to retailers on Saturday, January 4th even if the retailer has invoice(s) coming 30 days due on Friday, January 3, 2014. This is due to the projected inclement weather conditions, which may result in delivery and office operations being closed/canceled due to such weather. This deferment of administrative charges is not precedent setting and applies to this unique set of facts and circumstances.”
The Department of Consumer Protection, through the State Liquor Control Commission, oversees all sales of liquor in the State of Connecticut.
