Event Types: 
CLE Programming
Date: 
Tuesday, December 2, 2014 - 12:00pm

New 2014 Tennessee liquor laws dramatically changed the liquor business in Tennessee. Wine in Grocery Stores (which we affectionately call "WIGS") not only legalized the sale of wine in Kroger, WIGS gave retail liquor stores the right to sell beer and a host of other goods beginning July 1, 2014. The WIGS compromise requires the voters of each city or county to petition to have a local referendum election to approve of WIGS in the city or county. If WIGS is approved by local option election, grocery stores cannot begin selling wine until July 1, 2016.
