After losing last year’s bid to sell beer and wine, supermarkets and convenience stores are putting their efforts behind legislation to let them sell full-strength beer.
The movement has caused alarm among liquor store owners such as Chris Risley of Coconuts liquor store, next to the Bergen Park King Soopers. Risley says the supermarkets want to drive the liquor stores out of business.
“We know what they are after. We have been fighting this for years,” Risley said.
