Sununu Exploring Curbside Pickup At New Hampshire's State-Run Liquor Stores

Mar 25, 2020

Governor Chris Sununu says the state is exploring the option of offering curbside pickup at New Hampshire Liquor and Wine Outlets as a way to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, while allowing the outlets to remain open.

Sununu said the details were still being worked out.

The governor signed an executive order last week allowing people to purchase beer and wine directly from local restaurants, which have been limited to offering only carry-out or delivery service due to the virus.

At a remote meeting of the Executive Council convened by phone Wednesday morning, state liquor officials also addressed questions from councilors about the health and safety of liquor outlet employees. They said liquor store employees have been given supplies to sanitize their stores and are encouraged to maintain as much distance from customers as possible.
