IBJ Podcast: Here’s why a mega liquor store is trying to move to Indiana

A ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court last year could open the door to out-of-state liquor stores moving into Indiana.

In fact, Maryland-based Total Wine & More, the nation’s largest retailer of beer, wine and spirits with 206 superstores, has filed an application to open a store at 1460 E. 86th St. in the Nora Corners Shopping Center. An Indiana Alcohol & Tobacco Commission hearing is scheduled for March 2.

IBJ reporter John Russell explains the Supreme Court’s ruling, which struck down another state’s law prohibiting out-of-state ownership of liquor stores. And he details how Total Wine & More is different than most liquor stores in Indiana and what its move into the market could mean for mom-and-pop shops.
