HARRISBURG, Pa., June 30, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board (PLCB) reminds customers that hundreds of Fine Wine & Good Spirits stores will be open Tuesday, July 4 – Independence Day – as well as on Columbus Day and Veterans' Day this year.
On Independence Day, stores that are normally open on Tuesdays will be open from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM. Store locations and hours are available at www.FineWineAndGoodSpirits.com.
Previously, state law had prohibited stores from opening on holidays. Act 39 of 2016 removed the holiday restrictions, opening the door to improved consumer convenience and customer service.
Fine Wine & Good Spirits stores will observe their normal operating hours on Columbus Day (Monday, Oct. 9) and Veterans' Day (both observed and actual – Friday, Nov. 10, and Saturday, Nov. 11).
The PLCB regulates the distribution of beverage alcohol in Pennsylvania, operates more than 600 wine and spirits stores statewide, and licenses 20,000 alcohol producers, retailers, and handlers. The PLCB also works to reduce and prevent dangerous and underage drinking through partnerships with schools, community groups, and licensees. Taxes and store profits – totaling $15.1 billion since the agency's inception – are returned to Pennsylvania's General Fund, which finances Pennsylvania's schools, health and human services programs, law enforcement, and public safety initiatives, among other important public services. The PLCB also provides financial support for the Pennsylvania State Police Bureau of Liquor Control Enforcement, the Department of Drug and Alcohol Programs, other state agencies, and local municipalities across the state.
