Default SV no longer shipping spirits

Latest e-mail from SV:

"Due to events out of our control, Shoppers Vineyard will no
longer be able to ship spirits. We will continue to run specials,
but all purchases will have to be made in-store. Additionally,
any pending orders that include spirits will unfortunately be
cancelled. If you'd like to make arrangements to pick your
order up in-store please contact us."

That is a crying shame. A few of us in MD/VA count on the occasional shipment from Shoppers for special bargains and hard to find rums.
