More Pennsylvania wine and spirits stores are opening for business on Sundays, with another 94 set to begin Sunday operations for the first time this weekend.
Ten of the 94 stores are in the midstate region of Cumberland, Dauphin, York, Lancaster and Lebanon counties.
The openings are part of Pennsylvania’s new liquor reform law that was signed this spring.
Additionally, the PLCB will expand Sunday hours in all 188 stores that were previously open from noon to 5 p.m. on Sundays. Stores will now open at 11 a.m. and close at 7 p.m. on Sundays.
The 10 regional stores opening on Sundays for the first time are:
- Shippen Town Center, 109 S. Conestoga Drive, Shippensburg Township
- Stonehenge Square Shopping Center, 950 Walnut Bottom Road, South Middleton Township
- Mechanicsburg Plaza, 5301 Simpson Ferry Road, Hampden Township

The Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board plans to add Sunday hours for 26 more stores on Sept. 4, bringing the number of stores open on Sunday to more than 300, or about half of all stores, officials said.
Gov. Tom Wolf and the PLCB “are committed to providing greater convenience and satisfaction to Pennsylvania customers, and now comes the important work of implementing the law,” said Beth Melena, deputy press secretary in the governor’s press office.
