Five More Fine Wine & Good Spirits to Begin Limited In-Store Public Access in Southeast Pennsylvania

​559 FW&GS stores across Pennsylvania will be open for retail sales

Harrisburg – The Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board today announced that five more Fine Wine & Good Spirits stores in southeast Pennsylvania will resume limited in-store public access, abiding by guidance for businesses issued by the Wolf Administration detailing social distancing requirements and other best practices in the interest of public health and safety. 

Effective this weekend, 559 Fine Wine & Good Spirits stores across Pennsylvania will allow limited in-store public access, including the following four stores opening Friday, June 26. 
  • Fine Wine & Good Spirits Premium Collection at 2040 Market St.
  • Fine Wine & Good Spirits at 2118 Cottman Ave.
  • Fine Wine & Good Spirits at Roosevelt Plaza, 6577 Roosevelt Blvd.
  • Fine Wine & Good Spirits at 7204 Germantown Ave.
On Saturday, June 27, the following store will open in Montgomery County:
  • Fine Wine & Good Spirits Premium Collection at 119 W. City Ave., Bala Cynwyd
Open stores and their hours are identified on the store locator page of FineWineAndGoodSpirits.com.

The following mitigation efforts will be in place as stores resume limited in-store public access: 
  • 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.
Prior to opening to the public, each location was professionally sanitized, and Plexiglas was installed at registers to provide a physical barrier between employees and customers at checkout. All Fine Wine & Good Spirits employees are being provided masks, gloves, and frequent opportunities to wash hands.

Stores reopening to limited public access will continue offering curbside pickup to the best of their abilities, as they operate with limited staff. The PLCB will also continue accepting online orders at FineWineAndGoodSpirits.com

The PLCB regulates the distribution of beverage alcohol in Pennsylvania, operates nearly 600 wine and spirits stores statewide, and licenses 20,000 alcohol producers, retailers, and handlers. The PLCB also works to reduce and prevent dangerous and underage drinking through partnerships with schools, community groups, and licensees. Taxes and store profits – totaling nearly $18.5 billion since the agency’s inception – are returned to Pennsylvania’s General Fund, which finances Pennsylvania’s schools, health and human services programs, law enforcement, and public safety initiatives, among other important public services. The PLCB also provides financial support for the Pennsylvania State Police Bureau of Liquor Control Enforcement, the Department of Drug and Alcohol Programs, other state agencies, and local municipalities across the state.
