Legislation Could Expand Alcohol Sales in MD
There’s legislation in Annapolis that could provide a license to stores, grocery stores, convenience stores and drug stores to sell beer and wine.
In Wicomico County, there are few grocery stores that sell wine and beer.
The Salisbury Daily Times reports that they were grandfathered in during the mid-1990’s under article 2 B of the county’s alcohol law.
No new licenses have been issued for grocery stores to sell alcohol.
Under the new law a chain store license would be provided to club stores, supermarkets, drug stores and convenience stores to carry beer and wine.
The stores would also be able to apply for a beer and wine tasting license if the county issues the licenses.
