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.
Not sure if "discontinued" means the item is on sale but I have learned that the LCBO will not, or is very reluctant to, ship sale wines to other stores. The reasoning is that the wine has already been reduced so there is no profit margin to be made, wen you factor in the cost of shipping.
So, when they put slow moving wines on sale, I guess they just want them to be sold from that particular store.
