Most states have regulations concerning the sale of drinking alcohol. In
Massachusetts, for example:

Grocery and convenience stores can sell beer and wine from 8 a.m. to 11
p.m. Monday through Saturday. Restaurants and bars can serve from 8 a.m.
to 2 a.m. Monday through Saturday. No alcohol sales begin before noon on
Sunday.

It’s illegal to sell alcohol on any election day while polls are open.

Happy hours are illegal in the state. In addition, Massachusetts alcohol
laws prohibit retailers from passing on their bulk buy discount to
consumers. And like some states, Massachusetts has dry towns:

Alford, Chilmark, Dunstable, Gosnold, Hawley, Montgomery, Mount
Washington, Needham and Westhampton. These townships prohibit the sale
of alcohol.

South Carolina has some unusual regulations (at least they are unusual
to me). The state also regulates days and hours when you *must* be open
(in addition to when you must be closed). The state also regulates the
number of distributors you can deal with ... the longer you are in
business, the more distributors you can have.

Also, liquor stores in SC can only sell
hard booze and wine. They cannot sell beer. Part of that reasoning
is because food stores (supermarkets) can sell beer but not hard liquor.

I can't remember the last time I bought anything other than a six pack
of beer.

One thing I noticed in your cite of MA regulations however:

Many convenience type stores up here sell beer, wine and hard liquor
but no grocery (supermarket) type stores sell alcoholic beverages
at all .... at least not any I've ever seen. In SC a liquor store
cannot sell beer ... only hard booze and wine. Beer can be purchased
in grocery (supermarket) type stores.

Most "regular" grocery and convenience stores in Maryland can't even
sell beer or wine, thanks to the liquor store lobby here. We do have a
two store chain, Nicks, that sells a lot of booze because it is licensed
as a liquor store, but those stores are also and secondarily specialty
grocery and deli stores.

I found a "new" beer this year, an American beer. Bought a six pack in
May, still have two bottles left...it's Blue Moon Belgian White. Very
smooth and tasty.

Liquor laws are wildly divergent state by state. I might still be a Life

since about 1966.

In Maryland the counties were king when I was there. Hours, days open
and products allowed to be sold varied widely across county lines.
Montgomery had county owned liquor stores that closed early but could
buy beer and wine in the grocery store. PG was privately owned liquor
stores, open till 2 but you couldn't buy beer at the grocery store
unless they had a separate liquor operation.
Charles was pretty much wide open and you could get a mixed drink at
the drive through on Sunday. I assume they cracked down on that.

They're in good shape. Their main house is inland. They've got
the boats out and inland also. Thanks
for that offer thought. We're going down on the 14th rather than
the 5th. "Discretion is the better
part of valor...and all that."



LOL!¬* John, the offer was actually for Luddite's son and his
family who live in Charleston.¬* I knew you and your family was
OK.¬* If you are ever in need, the invitation is good for you, too!



I missed your offer but thanks.¬* Last I heard my son's wife and the
three kids still living with them are heading out to someplace in
Columbia where their oldest daughter¬* attends the
University of South Carolina.

My son is going to hunker down at the liquor store he has in Mt.
Pleasant.¬* It's a couple of miles inland from his house and on
higher ground.

I have a great deal of sympathy for him.¬* One daughter, 19 years old
in college who has met a guy and they have marriage plans when they
graduate, a 16 year old daughter who will soon be choosing a school
and then, paternal twins, 7 years old, one girl, one boy.

He and his wife have a long ways to go.

Very good.¬* They'll be safe in Columbia.¬* Forecast is for up to 1
inch of rain tonight and ~20mph winds, gusts to 35.¬* No big deal.

Fortunately even the coastal areas are dodging a bullet.¬* There will
be some damage and flooding, but much of the punch has left the storm.

Yes, your son has some road left to travel.¬* If you don't mind, post
the name of his store.¬* I have a friend that lives in Mt. Pleasant
who also happens to be riding it out.¬* I'll let him know about the
store so he can stop by sometimes.¬* He likes top shelf bourbon.



His store is called "Palmetto 80 Liquors".¬*¬* The original store is in
a shopping complex called "Shoppes at Seaside Farms", located off the
Isle of Palms Connector road.¬* Address is:

Palmetto 80 Liquors
1985 Rivera Drive #102, Mt Pleasant, SC

He just opened a second store but I have no clue where it is.¬* The
stores are known in the area as being more upscale and
he stocks a lot of top shelf and hard to find booze.¬* It's not anything
like the typical small liquor stores you find in the various strip
malls down there.

The original store has won repeated awards, including "Best in Mt.
Peasant" and "Best in Charleston Area".

His only headache is that liquor stores in SC are very highly regulated
by the state in terms of obtaining a license, operating hours and
vendor/distributor¬* contracts.¬* The state dictates when the store can
open, when it has to close and even dictates when he *has* to be open.

Most states have regulations concerning the sale of drinking alcohol.
In Massachusetts, for example:

Grocery and convenience stores can sell beer and wine from 8 a.m. to
11 p.m. Monday through Saturday. Restaurants and bars can serve from 8
a.m. to 2 a.m. Monday through Saturday. No alcohol sales begin before
noon on Sunday.

It’s illegal to sell alcohol on any election day while polls are open.

Happy hours are illegal in the state. In addition, Massachusetts
alcohol laws prohibit retailers from passing on their bulk buy
discount to consumers. And like some states, Massachusetts has dry towns:

Alford, Chilmark, Dunstable, Gosnold, Hawley, Montgomery, Mount
Washington, Needham and Westhampton. These townships prohibit the sale
of alcohol.

South Carolina has some unusual regulations (at least they are unusual
to me).¬* The state also regulates days and hours when you *must* be open
(in addition to when you must be closed).¬*¬* The state also regulates the
number of distributors you can deal with ... the longer you are in
business, the more distributors you can have.

Also, liquor stores in SC can only sell
hard booze and wine.¬* They cannot sell beer.¬* Part of that reasoning
is because food stores (supermarkets) can sell beer but not hard liquor.

Liquor laws are wildly divergent state by state. I might still be a Life
Member of a "bottle club" in Topeka, Kansas, though I haven't been there
since about 1966.


I am probably still a life member at the Athens Strip in Dallas if
they are still around. That is where I turned 21. It was funny tho. I
had been drinking there the best part of a week when one waitress
decided to card me around 23:30 and told me I couldn't drink out of my
bottle until I was 21. At midnight I had a birthday party with a half
dozen strippers and my IBM buddies. It was probably my most
unforgettable birthday.

I'm sure you've heard, but Mt. Pleasant and even James Island had minimal damage. My friend in Mt. Pleasant said his light blinked a couple of times, and there were no trees down in his neighborhood.

Oh, and he says he know where your son's store is, and he's going to go by there and have a look. Thanks.
