Honolulu Star-Advertiser - - MONEY -

PITTS­BURGH >> Of­fi­cials say a gro­cery store in Penn­syl­va­nia has be­come the first su­per­mar­ket since Pro­hi­bi­tion to sell wine in the state.

Pre­vi­ously, only state-owned liquor stores or kiosks had been al­lowed to sell wine. Un­der a new law, cus­tomers can buy up to 3 liters of wine to go from busi­nesses that hold restau­rant or ho­tel liquor li­censes.

The Penn­syl­va­nia Liquor Con­trol Board says it has ap­proved more than 80 su­per­mar­kets, res­tau­rants and ho­tels to sell wine to go. A Gi­ant Ea­gle store in sub­ur­ban Pitts­burgh be­came the first to start sell­ing wine Fri­day.
