Helping customers and sourcing product is the daily work of running a store, and you tend to take for granted the conditions of your local market. For example, the prevalence of price posting in the northeast has been a significant factor in creating a number of opportunities for the trade.

State regulators, wineries,distributors and trade associations often have competing agendas.
