Fight Over Alcohol to Go Shaping Up
With key state legislators expressing interest in extending the privilege of selling alcohol to go, the associations representing liquor stores have started an aggressive campaign to try to block this measure. Alcohol to go served as an important lifeline for many on-premises operators over the past year. Even with the relaxation of restrictions it’s going to take time to recover – economists are expecting it to take up to two years. Extending your ability to sell alcohol to go will help establishments get back on their feet as patrons slowly get comfortable returning to indoor dining.
