Sheetz sells more than just beer now
SHIPPENSBURG- If you are in the mood for some wine you no longer have to take a drive to the liquor store. Shippensburg Sheetz is the first convenience store in the corporations chain to get a license to sell wine in Pennsylvania this past Monday (10/3/16).
The store is allowed to sell takeout wine under the new state liquor law known as “ABC and Wine Privatization Act.” Which took effect on August 8, 2016.
Sheetz already sells beer, but that was also a struggle to obtain. The Shippensburg Sheetz fought for the right to sell beer and eventually won, receiving approval from the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board.
The store will sell wine from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m., Monday–Saturday, and 9 a.m. to 11 p.m. on Sundays. Customers are permitted to purchase up to four bottles in one visit.
