Many non -chain restaurants, bars and clubs are hard pressed with their available finances to purchase their inventory. As such, they are always on the lookout for a new, cheaper avenue to take- improving their margins and profits along the way. Some will take any available opportunity presented to them to get their inventory as cheap as possible, even if it means taking advantage of liquor stores who have very minimal or inefficient liquor bottle security.
The typical cycle a bottle goes through to get to a sales floor is the liquor or wine is bottled and then distributed by the maker of that particular brand of alcohol.
From there it arrives at a liquor store (restaurant, nightclub, etc) to be sold to an adult over the age of 21. It is here that the bottles sometimes decide to add in a new step in the distribution process.
Through the theft of liquor bottles from a near by liquor store, criminal theft rings have been started by or work with these non- chain establishments to produce a new, cheaper stream of inventory. If the bottles of alcohol are stolen and then resold, there does not need to be as high of a price. Non- chain establishments can purchase at a significantly lower price.
Many criminal theft rings will target the liquor stores that do not have adequate liquor bottle security. They will scout out the stores where they can easily get the particular bottles their “customers” are requesting, almost as if they are shopping from a grocery list.
