Colo. grocery stores seek liquor sale rights

Filed under: Daily News | Tags:, ,

Colorado lawmakers are considering a plan that would allow a grocery store to transfer ownership of a liquor store license.

The measure being considered today by the House Business Affairs and Labor Committee would also allow businesses to convert a retail liquor store license to a liquor-licensed drug store.

Earlier this year, convenience stores lost their bid to sell full-strength beer following opposition from liquor store owners and craft breweries.

The same coalition has killed previous attempts by convenience stores and supermarkets to make inroads in the liquor business.

  1. Sure a good deal for consumers. I bought some $3 a bottle red wine in WalMart in Florida that is $8.50 here in the Springs at Cheers. I support this idea. Bring it on, GET’ER DONE!
