The location at 359 E. King St. in Shippensburg will be the first convenience store in the commonwealth to sell takeout wine under the new state liquor law that took effect in August.
Among other things, the law expands the ability of convenience stores and groceries to sell wine and beer for take-out. Over the last few weeks, numerous chains have announced plans to begin selling wine or to expand their offerings.
Speaker of the House Mike Turzai, a longtime proponent of liquor-store privatization, along with other state officials and Sheetz board director Louie Sheetz, will be on hand at the Shippensburg store for an 11 a.m. event to recognize the first official wine sale.
The chain has been very vocal about alcohol reforms in Pennsylvania, including allowing greater convenience for residents.
The new state liquor law, known as Act 39, is expected to add up to $150 million in new revenue this year for Pennsylvania, according to state officials.
