I STILL want to buy wine in a grocery store
I have written on this before at the Memphis Flyer, and I refer you to that today, that explains why I believe this is important and why I believe the liquor wholesalers are wrong. Look, when I want something Fancy, I will always go to Buster's, and I think they ought to be able to sell beer and I think some of the restrictions about where they can locate need to be loosened, that's a fair trade.
Remember folks, one can buy wine in a convenience store in Trumann, Arkansas, population 7,000, but not in Memphis, Tennessee, population 650,000. That is wrong on more levels than I can count.
But i want to be able to go Kroger's and buy wine if I want to or need to, and if I want to buy wine on Sunday afternoon, I should be able to do so. Go read my piece from last year, it is still relevant.
