Remote Ordering and Pickup works! 08/25/2021
By David Harrison
In preparing for my annual home winemaker activities, I dropped by the Beverage People warehouse, only to learn that the store operation had ceased. I got on line and ordered the supplies I needed and a day later received a phone call that the items were ready for pickup in the box trailer in front of the warehouse. They were ready and the process worked very well.
