Allowing wine in grocery stores will put thousands of mom & pop liquor stores out of business in New York, in every legislative district in the State.

It has come to our attention that Senate Bill S6786 was recently introduced that would allow wine in grocery stores. The bill, which will be introduced by Assembly Member Pamela Hunter and co-sponsored by Senator Liz Krueger, will allow grocery stores over 5,000 square feet with more than 65% of its revenue from grocery sales to sell wine.

We strongly oppose this bill and, on behalf of all of the independently-owned liquor stores, distributors and New York wineries across New York State, we urge you to OPPOSE it too. If you do, please consider calling and emailing your NY Senator and Assembly Member so that they understand the consequences of such a bill.
