CORONAVIRUS 2020: Here is a running list of all Press & Journal stories from the beginning of the pandemic

The Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board today announced it will expand its recently introduced curbside pickup service to 389 more Fine Wine & Good Spirits locations across the commonwealth on Monday — and the Middletown location is one of them.

Fine Wine & Good Spirits No. 2206, Mid-Town Plaza, 430 E. Main St., Middletown, is on the expanded list. Its phone number is 717-948-3533.

Also to be open for curbside pickup are Fine Wine & Good Spirits Premium Collection No. 2211, Hershey Square Shopping Center, 1158 Mae St., Hummelstown, 717-534-2494; Fine Wine & Good Spirits No. 2204, 325 N. Front St., Steelton, 717-939-5474; and Fine Wine & Good Spirits No. 2218, 731 Cherry Drive, Hershey, 717-534-2810. There are 14 Dauphin County locations on the expanded list.

The additional openings will mean 565 Fine Wine & Good Spirits stores across Pennsylvania will be accepting orders by phone for curbside pickup.

Monday, April 20, was the first day curbside pickup was introduced at 176 Fine Wine & Good Spirts locations across Pennsylvania. In its first four days, the PLCB’s curbside pickup program sold 38,145 orders totaling $3.64 million. Sales figures are preliminary and unaudited.

The PLCB transacted nearly 6,000 curbside orders for $569,000 in sales on Monday. Tuesday, 8,000 orders for $756,000 were sold, Wednesday, 11,300 orders for $1.05 million were sold, and Thursday saw 12,800 orders for $1.27 million.

“We acknowledge that Pennsylvanians are frustrated with busy signals and want broader access to wine and spirits, so after learning from our experiences this past week, we’ve made improvements to process orders faster, expand the hours we take orders by phone, and be more flexible in scheduling pickups, even the same day, if pickup appointments are available,” PLCB Chairman Tim Holden said.

Most stores will support curbside service Monday through Saturday, taking a limited number of orders on a first-call, first-served basis beginning at 9 a.m. each day and scheduling pickup appointments between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. those days. Some stores will operate on more limited days and hours. 

Each store has its own inventory and staff will guide callers through the products available for purchase before finalizing each order and taking payment by phone, according to the PLCB. At pickup, customers will be required to present identification before the order is delivered.

Curbside pickup orders will be limited to up to six bottles per order, and credit cards are the only accepted form of payment. Orders will also be limited to one order per caller, per store, per day, and all curbside pickup sales are final.

Stores will continue to accept the first 50 to 100 orders placed each day, on a first-call, first-served basis, until fulfillment capacity grows to accept more orders per day. Orders will only be accepted by the store’s published phone number; no orders will be accepted by email or voicemail.

“Once again, we ask customers to remain patient, and we’re hopeful that the more e-commerce and curbside pickup orders we can process, over time, the better we’ll be able to serve more and more Pennsylvanians through this pandemic,” Holden said.

The PLCB continues sales at FineWineAndGoodSpirits.com, now with more than 100 locations picking and packing e-commerce orders. Website access continues to be randomized to avoid overwhelming the site with high traffic and prolong access throughout the day, although daily orders have increased exponentially, the PLCB said.

Preliminary, unaudited sales figures indicate online orders from April 1 through 23 totaled 74,624 for $7.11 million. In fiscal year 2018-19, e-commerce sales between July 1, 2018, and June 30, 2019, totaled 39,000 orders for $5 million.

Statewide, only 16 Fine Wine & Good Spirits stores will not be open for curbside delivery. These are primarily stores in remote areas of Pennsylvania that only operated on a few days a week using one or two employees per stores.
