New reforms to the Pennsylvania liquor laws will grant consumers greater convenience, as they will now have the ability to purchase beer and wine at Sheetz stores.
Customers of Pennsylvania Sheetz Convenience Stores are being granted the convenience of purchasing beer and wine at Sheetz stores.
Pennsylvania’s newly adopted modernized bill, PA-HB 1690, will change the way liquor is sold in Pennsylvania today. It will improve convenience for customers and will potentially generate $150 million in new revenue for Pennsylvania.
“This bill is the most significant change to Pennsylvania in 80 years. We continue to show our support and gratitude to Governor Wolf, the Senate and House leaders for advancing the issue and driving the change in beer reform in Pennsylvania,” said Ryan Sheetz, assistant vice president of brand strategy. “We are thrilled to be able to give our Pennsylvania customers the common right they deserve.”
Sheetz has long been a driving voice of change regarding beer reform and has been committed to this movement by not only advancing the issue but also by responsibly selling beer in a handful of stores by complying with all laws and regulations as they are set forth today. Sheetz stores enforce a 100% proof-of-age policy and employees will ask for proper identification from any customer wanting to purchase alcohol. Currently, Sheetz sells beer in more than 200 stores across the five other states in the company’s footprint, including the successful sale of beer at four other locations in Pennsylvania.
“We are excited to finally be able to give our customers what they have long been asking us to do. Provide them with the convenience of a one-stop-shop,” said Sheetz. “This law was archaic and nonsensical. The goal for our entire operation is to give our customers what they want, how they want, when they want it, 24/7. Providing convenience to our customers is at the forefront of everything we do and we are committed to this cause until the law is changed for the benefit of our Pennsylvania customers.”
