Reply to "LCBO Price Alert"

Hey Web,

You nailed it with 'extremely low inventory wines'. Even though people complain about both, I find the lottery situation at least more fair. The first come first serve basis is heavily biased against anyone who cannot schedule their week and day around the 8:30 AM Thursday release. Since most of the popular 'low volume' wines seem to be gone by 8:32.

At least with the lottery system it seemed to place people on a somewhat even footing. There is no perfect way to allocate wine that is in such high demand and low quantity.

Just my 2 Cents

Like OTW, I'm now less inclined to participate in the Classics , and will not go back to standing in line at Stores on a Saturday morning. Mind you, I gave up standing at stores waiting for the allocation in about 1999. I actually only did that once, and was cured of any desire of repeating the exercise.
