HARRISBURG, Pa. — Pennsylvania plans to test the addition of hard liquor to some of the wine-vending kiosks that were installed in supermarkets in the state last year, according to reports.
Among current wine-kiosk locations are a Giant of Carlisle store in Susquehanna Township and a Wegmans in Mechanicsburg. The Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board is scheduled to announce in the coming days which kiosk locations would be used to test the additional alcohol offerings.
Pennsylvania traditionally had restricted alcohol sales to state-run stores, but began experimenting with the kiosks last year.
It could still be several months before the sale of spirits through the vending machines actually begins, according to a report on Pennlive.com.
A spokesperson for the PLCB could not be reached for comment.
Earlier this year Wal-Mart was approved to add wine kiosks on 24 of its locations across the state.
