HARRISBURG (Newsradio 1020 KDKA) – The Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board announced Wednesday that 155 more Fine Wine and Good Spirits stores in counties moving into the yellow phase on Friday will be allowed to open limited in-store public access.

As of Friday, May 15th, 71 stores will be open in Allegheny County, 3 in Armstrong County, 9 in Butler, 7 in Fayette, 5 in Mercer, 10 in Washington County, and 23 in Westmoreland County. For the full list of open stores, click here.

The stores will have to follow social distancing and other practices outlined by the Wolf Administration.

Opened stores must follow these guidelines:

  • Stores will limit the number of customers in a store at any time, allowing no more than 25 people (employees and customers) in any location and further restricting numbers of customers in smaller stores. 
  • The first hour each store is open each day will be reserved for customers at high risk for COVID-19, including those 65 years of age and older. Voluntary compliance from all customers is encouraged in the interest of protecting the health and safety of our most vulnerable community members.
  • Customers and employees will be required to wear masks and practice social distancing, guided by signage throughout the stores.  
  • Signage will also direct customers to follow one-way patterns to avoid cross-traffic and encourage them to refrain from touching products unless they intend to buy them.
  • Store employees will perform enhanced and frequent cleaning and disinfecting, and store hours will be modified to ensure appropriate time for cleaning and restocking.
  • All sales are final, and no returns will be accepted until further notice.

A total of 232 Fine Wine and Good Spirits stores in 36 counties will be open.
