The new store has a "Made in Pennsylvania" section to highlight wine and spirits produced in the commonwealth. Also, this store features Pennsylvania Lottery ticket sales.
Throughout the design and construction of the new facility, the PLCB was committed to developing a store that is attractive and environmentally responsible. The majority of the store's lighting is state-of-the-art LED or energy-efficient compact-fluorescent lighting, using a fraction of the energy of traditional lighting.
This new Fine Wine & Good Spirits Premium Collection Store will be open from 9:00 AM to 9:00 PM Monday through Saturday, and from 11:00 AM to 7:00 PM on Sundays. The phone number of the store is 814-231-1797. To find additional store locations, visit www.FineWineAndGoodSpirits.com.
The new Fine Wine & Good Spirits Premium Collection Store replaces the store at Hills Plaza, which is now closed.
The PLCB regulates the distribution of beverage alcohol in Pennsylvania, operates more than 600 wine and spirits stores statewide and licenses more than 20,000 beverage alcohol producers and retailers. 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 and law enforcement and public safety initiatives across the state, among other things. 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.
