Effort To Sell Wine In TN Grocery Stores Fails
(Nashville, TN) The move to sell wine in Tennessee grocery stores is dead.
The proposal failed to move out of a house committee by a single vote today.
The committee refused the sponsor’s request for a week delay to come up with a final version.
The bill would have allowed a county to have a vote on whether they wanted to allow grocery stores to sell wine.
Liquor store owners said rules imposed on them would have given an unfair advantage to grocery stores.
