I mean. The price wasn’t GOD AWFUL but after shipping and hazmat it was.
But this is what needs to happen. Prices from big box stores and online retailers need to go up. They needed to go up a long time ago. I don’t LIKE it but if they were free to raise prices it would have prevented a ton of scalping. When people see empty shelves they buy anything they can. If retailers were able to raise the wine prices as demand dictated (vs. big box stores being locked at certain pricing) panick buyers and opportunity buyers wouldn’t have bought and the shelves wouldn’t be nearly as empty which wouldn’t in turn cause MORE panic buying. Then prices could come down as demand dictates
