Battle brewing between liquor stores and grocery stores in Florida

28-Feb-2014

After the recent introduction of two new bills in the Florida legislature that would allow spirits to be sold alongside wine and beer in supermarkets and retail stores, Florida’s independent retailers are seeing the move as a call to arms. The two new proposals, in the Senate (SB804) and the House of Representatives (HB877), are being supported by Walmart and opposed by the Florida Independent Spirits Association. Committee chairmen in both chambers will soon decide whether these bills will receive hearings. – Shanken Daily News
