To help process online orders, workers will be back on the job at many state-owned wine and liquor stores, the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board said Thursday.
The stores will not be open to the public.
Gov. Tom Wolf’s office gave the OK to reopen more than 100 of the state system’s 600 stores to help with online fulfillment, a PLCB spokeswoman said.
Wolf ordered the stores shuttered at close of business March 17 as part of the effort against covid-19. On March 16, the day the closures were announced, wine and liquor sales hit $29.9 million — a record high for single-day sales in at least a decade.
