Manchester and Tullahoma Will Vote On Wine Sells In Grocery Stores

wineIn November Coffee County voters will be voting yes or no on a wheel tax. Now Manchester and Tullahoma are among municipalities across the state that obtained enough signatures to have wine-in-grocery-stores referendums placed on the Nov. 4 ballot.
If the “yes” votes win, shoppers will still have to wait nearly two years for wine to actually appear on grocery shelves, since the bill requires grocery stores to wait until July 1, 2016.
The law allowing voters a choice on wine sells has given liquor stores the option of selling items they have never sold before. Liquor stores can now sell a wide variety of new items including corkscrews, mixers, snacks, beer and cigarettes.
