Tyler, Tx — Local grocery stores will begin stocking their shelves with beer and wine Friday.
Brookshire’s, FRESH by Brookshire’s and Super 1 Foods stores in Tyler have received permit approval from the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission to begin selling beer and wine for off-site consumption.
Brookshire's Grocery Company will begin selling the products this afternoon.
Tylerites passed Proposition 2--- the legal sale of beer or wine for off premise consumption only -- back on the November 6 General Elections.
Brookshire's Spokeswoman Ellen Reynolds tells KETK a variety of beer and wine products will be available in each store where alcohol sales are now allowed. What they choose will depend on the store's size, along with other factors.
The FRESH by Brookshire’s store on Old Jacksonville Highway will offer an expanded variety including craft beers and a larger selection of wines at varying prices.
