Liquor law changes take effect

Act 39, legislation passed in early June providing substantial updates to Pennsylvania's liquor laws and--most notably--allowing the sale of wine in grocery stores, went into effect Monday.

Saying they are hitting the ground running, the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board (PLCB) is now accepting requests for various new licenses and permits authorized under Act 39.

Requests for wine expanded permits, conversions of eating place licenses into restaurant licenses, casino liquor licenses and direct wine shipper licenses may now be submitted through PLCB+, a new online licensing platform introduced earlier this year.

PLCB opens enrollment for online liquor order portal to all retail licensees

The Licensee Online Order Portal (LOOP), an Internet-based system developed by the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board (PLCB) that allows licensees to order wine and spirits at any time from home or office, is now available for 15,000 retail licensees to use.

Previously, a licensee could only place orders for wine and spirits during normal business hours by contacting a local store. Through LOOP, orders can be placed online at any time of day, on any day of the year and emails to users confirms receipt of orders, order availability for pick up and final order invoices. 

“Not only does LOOP replace and archaic ordering system of phone calls and faxes to stores with a web-based portal offering 24/7 access, it also affords licensees new visibility into produce sales and promotions,” said PLCB Chairman Tim Holden.
