Study Shows That Allowing Grocery Stores to Sell Wine Will Save Massachusetts Consumers $26 to $36 Million Per Year


BOSTON, MA – Aug. 23 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — A newly released study of the Massachusetts Wine at Food Stores Initiative concluded that updating state law to allow grocery stores to sell wine would save Massachusetts consumers an estimated $26 to $36 million dollars each year. The study noted that data from the 34 other states that already allow grocery stores to sell wine show that grocery stores are as good or better than package stores at enforcing minimum drinking age laws and that competition in wine sales from grocery stores does not drive package stores out of business.
