Under A New Bill, You Could Buy Wine At Your Grocery Store

Mar 6, 2014

A Kansas House committee will soon consider a proposal to phase in sales of strong beer, wine and liquor at grocery and convenience stores.

The measure allows liquor store owners to sell their licenses to other retailers in the same county, starting in July of 2015.

Kansas currently permits groceries and convenience stores to sell only weak "3-2" beer. The bill would let them start selling stronger beer in 2017, wine by 2020, and liquor by 2024.
