Stores To Sell Wine
August 14, 2000
Mr. Paul Kaspszak
Minnesota Municipal Beverage Association
P.O. Box 32966
Minneapolis, MN 55432
At the meeting recently held, I expressed the
opposition of the wine and spirits wholesalers to any legislation
permitting the sale of wine in grocery/food stores.
I understand you have asked that I restate our
position in writing.
Therefore, please know that Johnson Brothers
Wholesale Liquor Company, Ed Phillips & Sons, Quality Wine &
Spirits, Griggs, Cooper & Company, Bellboy Corporation and Sunny Hill
have all authorized me to reaffirm that they are opposed to the sale of
wine in grocery/food stores. It is fully their intention to vigorously
resist any legislation that would permit the sale of wine in grocery/food
Should you have any other questions, please call me.
