Customers who want to shop in-person at a Fine Wine & Good Spirits location will have to wear a face covering and practice social distancing.

In-person shopping is set to resume Friday on a limited basis at 23 Fine Wine & Good Spirits locations in the Philadelphia region. 

Those stores are among 549 liquor stores offering in-store access, according to the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board. All stores will have safety measures in place designed to prevent COVID-19 transmission. 

No more than 25 employees and customers will be permitted inside a store at any time, and capacity limits could be further restricted in smaller stores. Customers and employees are required to wear face coverings and practice social distancing.

Employees may wear gloves and are strongly encouraged to frequently wash hands. They will be responsible for frequently cleaning and disinfecting stores, and hours will be modified to ensure proper time for such tasks.

The first operating hour is reserved for customers at a higher risk of catching COVID-19, including people 65 and older.

Signage in the stores will direct customers to follow one-way patterns in order to avoid cross-traffic and encourage them to refrain from touching products that they don’t intend to buy.

Each location has been professionally sanitized, and plexiglas has been installed at registers to provide a physical barrier at checkout. All sales are final.

Fine Wine & Good Spirits stores will continue offering curbside pickup to the best of their ability as they operate with limited staff. Online orders are still being accepted too.
