Pennsylvania marks Prohibition milestone
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.
