    So let me get this straight. This bill does not allow liquor to be sold in grocery stores, ony wine correct? So you are saying that local liqour store sell so much wine and nothing else, that having to compete with Kroger, or Trader joe’s or Aldi for thier wine sales, is going to put them out of buisness?

    If that is the case, then all of these mom and pop buisnesses need to seriously re-evaluate thier buisness models.
