Price Posting & the Manhattan Beer Merger

The 13,000 New York City Bodegas and their independent beer distributor suppliers are constantly being threatened because of discriminatory pricing and predatory market behavior by some of New York State’s franchised wholesalers. A.7857/S.5758 (the price posting bill) would create a government protected price differential for New York City’s independent beer wholesalers, insuring equity among all of the players in the distribution system.

This merger underscores all of the serious points raised in the Bodega Association Report and it also seriously threatens the New York State Beer Market as a whole.

Here’s video from our City Hall press conference on this very important issue:
