Wine and spirits stores to reopen, with some changes – GoErie.com

No more than 25 people will be allowed in stores at a time, and all must wear masks.

Fifteen Fine Wine & Good Spirits stores in Erie County will reopen Friday in step with Gov. Tom Wolf’s COVID-19 reopening plan.

But there will be some changes in place to protect customers and staff from the virus, the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board said Wednesday in announcing the reopenings:

• No more than 25 employees and customers will be allowed in most stores at one time; fewer will be allowed in smaller stores.

• Customers and employees will be required to wear masks.

• Markings and signs will remind customers to keep their distance from others.

• The first hour that each store is open daily will be reserved for customers at high risk for COVID-19, including those 65 and older.

• Plexiglas has been installed at registers as a barrier between employees and customers.

• Store hours will be adjusted to accommodate daily cleaning, sanitizing and restocking. Each store reopening this week has been professionally sanitized.

Stores will continue to offer curbside pickup as they are able with limited staff. PLCB will also continue accepting orders at www.FineWineAndGoodSpirits.com.

The state-operated liquor stores have been closed since Wolf ordered non-essential businesses closed in March.
