Towns that sell beer and wine

If you want to see people think the end of the world is coming, get your town to approve beer and wine sales in grocery stores. My town in Texas just passed it by public vote and you would swear we are going to be in worse condition then Detroit this time next year by how people are freaking out.

Re: Towns that sell beer and wine

I have traveled around a lot and pretty much anywhere where you cannot purchase alcohol in any store is far too backwoods for my tastes. There are a lot more "dry counties" out there than city folk would ever imagine.

Re: Towns that sell beer and wine

Yeah I remember growing up, it was quite a few dry suburbs around Chicago. And it is the same thing with malls and super walmarts. You have some towns that think if that comes to the town, a lot of bad things will happen.

The state of Vermont is like that. You won't find a super walmart in this state and it is only one mall in this entire state and it isn't even big.

Does your town have a lot of small shops and no big retailers like Wal-Mart in it? Restricting the sale of alcohol helps keep stores like Wal-Mart out of small communities.

We're a wet county, but you cannot buy/sell alcohol on Sundays.
