However, she looked up the product I wanted and it's a discontinued item - and therefore cannot be shipped inter-store.
I don't understand the logic behind that... does being discontinued mean that they do not wish it to be sold? Must be some new inventory management concept that I am not aware of.

Notwithstanding the above, I have been told that they don't do ISTs on discounted products because it is already 'costing them on the discount, and it doesn't make sense to spend $15 (cost) to transfer to another store when they are already discounting it. The other policy on ISTs is that it is at the discretion of the consultant at the store with the inventory. Some hoard it like it's their own private stock. Others are happy to help out. Ah, the machinations of our government monopoly... and so it goes...
Good to know. The customer service rep at LCBO definitely said this was a discontinued product, though. Not discounted. Perhaps she just misspoke.
