I must admit that I really don't understand the LCBO. Here we are approaching the end of the first decade of the 21st century and the LCBO is still mailing out Classics catalogues via Canada Post before posting them on the vintages.com website.
I happen to be on vintages.com this morning, barely noticing that that the old January classics is still listed and the March classics is still flashing "NEW". The classics banner still hasn't changed as of 4:30pm. Here it is:
So imagine my surprise to find this in the mail later in the morning…
Apparently, producing a PDF and crafting some HTML (oh ya, I forgot the uploading part of the process) is more complicated and time consuming than traditional printing and manual distribution. Who knew?
Of course, it doesn't really matter because it's not like the early bird gets the worm when it comes to buying wine from the LCBO. Orders in to the lottery (for sought after wines only available in small quantities that is) are accepted up to May 21.
The LCBO has plenty of time to update the website ;)
