Eighty-four new locations in Pennsylvania will now offer bottled wine for sale to customers this month, after Governor Tom Wolf signed legislation in June that allowed grocers, restaurants and hotels in the state to sell certain alcohol.
The Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board received 174 requests for such licenses, which only became available a week ago, according to PennLive.com.

A greater number of stores will offer the service as the permitting process moves forward, according to the report.
Those with permits can start selling wine immediately, though those with higher volume sales may need to wait until the state liquor board can meet their demand for the supply, a statement from the governor’s office said.
