12/12/2012

Wholesaler/Retailer/Shipper

Chapter 6, Licensee Operations, 016.05 allows for the wholesaler to stock, rotate and affix the price to retailer's product. It does not allow wholesalers to be involved in the scanning, inventory process, or other similar acts. §53-168 Retailer accepting something of value from wholesaler & §53-169 Wholesaler be interested in the conduct of a retail licensed premises.

Sampling Regulation Chapter 6, Licensee Operations 002.01

Retailers and their employees may sample limited quantities of beer, wine, or spirits furnished by a manufacturer or wholesaler whether the license permits consumption on or off the licensed premise. Consumption shall not exceed more than five samples of one fluid ounce or less of alcohol liquor by the same person on a 24 hour period.

Warning: NLCC has received information again that this practice is being abused as follows;

Retailers are demanding wholesalers extend this privilege by leaving, at the premise, partial bottles samples or full bottles of the new product. The wholesaler is not allowed to leave unused samples with retailers. Field audits of retailer's records and wholesaler's records will now include a very close look at sampleing activities and records thereof. Please note this is under sampling regulation and not tasting regulation. Tasting requires the product to be invoiced to retailers.

MENU CARDS - CHAPTER 6-016.02

PLEASE BE ADVISED THAT MENU CARDS ARE ALLOWED TO BE GIVEN OR SOLD TO RETAILERS. ANYTHING BEYOND A SIMPLE MENU CARD LIKE BOUND LEATHER BOOKS ARE NOT ALLOWED AND WOULD BE CONSIDERED OF VIOLATION OF TRADE PRACTICE POLICY REGULATIONS.
