Post-Covid Wine & Spirits

Working at a small business wine shop in the Miami Beach community so I have first-hand knowledge when it comes to the challenges the pandemic has had on our operations. 

The big obvious is shortages across the board. Who would’ve guessed, right? Products and brands that were once available before are now out of stock for weeks, months, and certain products will not be available for another year maybe. Since product inventory is scarce, distributors are now making a list of clients in which bigger accounts get more products than smaller accounts. This has had massive effects on small shops like ours.

Another change in the wine and spirits industry is that a lot of retail stores have now had to implement an online or e-commerce site to complement their brick-and-mortar shops. Our business has not had the luxury of creating a functioning website (working on it), but online presence has never been more important.
