Liquor of all forms could be sold in Carbondale grocery, convenient stores

CARBONDALE, IL (KFVS) -

Picking up your favorite spirit mixer could soon become a one-stop shop in Carbondale.

Carbondale's liquor advisory board is considering allowing grocery and convenience stores to sell all forms of alcohol.

In 2011, the city approved beer and wine, now spirits could be appearing on the stores shelves.

It's good news for those businesses, but the idea is not sitting well with local liquor stores.

"If other places like convenient stores already sell soda, beer, gas, everything else everyone needs, why are they going to come here," said manager of Old Town Liquors in Carbondale.

The liquor advisory board is held a hearing and discussion Thursday.
