Colo. grocery stores want liquor sale rights
DENVER – Colorado lawmakers will try again to win approval for a measure that would allow grocery stores to sell liquor and other spirits.
The proposal has been opposed by the growing craft beer industry.
The measure has already won from the House Business Affairs and Labor Committee and on Wednesday, it goes before the House Finance Committee.
The bill would allow businesses to convert a retail liquor store license to a liquor-licensed drug store. It would also allow a grocery store to transfer ownership of a liquor store license.
