Rochester-area liquor stores, supermarkets fight over right to sell wine

Mar 1, 2009 Full story: Democrat & Chronicle 35

When it opened almost 10 years ago, Good Spirits Discount Wine & Liquor occupied what would prove to be a prime piece of Geneseo real estate - just doors down from the Wegmans supermarket.

I think we need to keep the wine at the liquor stores. This is how the liquor stores stay in business. If they only can sell liquor, they'll close up. The super stores put enough people out of business. Leave the liquor store owners alone. I'm sure they would like to be able to sell cheese and crackers but they leave that to the grocery stores

Just D I AGREE with you all the way. Big stores like Wegman's, WalMart and Tops are causing small business to close, because basically they have everything and people rather make a one stop than 2 or more. Leave the small business sell the wine!

When you put it that way, it makes more sense to keep it in the liquor stores. Good points, didn't think of it that way!

OK little girl sure you know how to spell. Let me just correct what you just wrote...

"Well I already know how to spell but they have classes at night for when you get off your mac dollens job"

What the heck is mac dollens? Do you mean McDonald's? And how you know he works there?

Go and do your homework and spend some time worrying about school and your chores.

I applaud your interest in current events and topics. I find it refreshing that as a teen you spend time, at least some time, away from stuff like myspace. I don't think that personal attacks against you due to your age are justified. They definately don't demonstrate common respect. Although you may be young that doesn't automatically disqualify you from deserving respect

To those who want to live in the past...
At one time, you had to go to a different store for meat, fish, bread, fruit & vegetables, dairy items...

Then along came the supermarket/grocery store where everything was under one roof...

Adding wine is no different... sure, maybe some wine shops will close due to inefficiencies, but that's how our economy operates... Much like Darwin, it's survival of the fittest...

The bad ones should fail... the good ones will adapt..

After reading posts from everyone (in general) I can't say that what she has posted seems any "less" respectful than other bloggers. Seriously, I'm sure you've seen some of the garbage posted on here, and I Doubt that it all came from teenagers I don't see anyone else being called out due to their age, so seems like the comments made on here must not be a direct result of age, huh. Sillyness comes in all stages of life.

My point is in supermarkets teens sell their friends beer just cos it's ok to them, in a liquor store the won't do that

so i say only sell it in the liquor stores not markets

after all that boy died from alcohol probably bought from a place where they sell kegs

:p

I am a drunk and proud of it God damn it!!! I pulled a 3.6 last semester in college and own my own place, full time work, full time school. Wegmans, Liquor stores, wherever I can buy it, they should be able to sell it. U pple should lighten up and have a beer for God's sake!! It might do u both some good!!!
