S.290 – Allowing curbside pickup of beer and wine
S.290 would allow retailers to offer curbside pickup of beer and wine. Customers under this bill may pre-purchase beer and wine online from a retailer, but must follow rules on where to park and certify they are at least 21 years old. Retailers would also be subject to stricter inventory management rules. Retailers who violate any beer or wine regulation could face fines up to $1,000.
This bill would allow beer and wine retailer more customer service and efficiency options. The fact that a bill is needed to do this, however, is a sign of extensive government overreach in this industry.
