Walgreens gets final OK to sell booze at 14 local stores

June 15, 2010

The Indiana Alcohol & Tobacco Commission voted unanimously Tuesday to allow Walgreens Co. to sell alcohol at 14 stores in Marion County.

Walgreens received preliminary approval on June 7 from the Local Alcoholic Beverage Board of Marion County, which recommended permits for 18 of the 28 stores for which the retail chain was seeking to sell alcohol. Four other Marion County Walgreens are still awaiting approval.

An attorney for the Illinois-based chain said it expected to start selling liquor at the stores within a month of receiving approval. Altogether, Walgreens wants to sell alcohol in 183 stores throughout the state and has received approval for about three-fourths of those locations.
