The McCaffrey’s Food Market in the Village at the Newtown Shopping Center has received approval by officials to sell beer and wine.
The Newtown Township Board of Supervisors approved the liquor license transfer unanimously in late September. The license was transferred from Milford Township in Upper Bucks County.
McCaffrey’s Food Market in the Village at Newtown Shopping Center will soon be selling beer and wine for take-out.
According to McCaffrey’s Attorney Matthew Goldstein, the supermarket will sell beer and wine for take-out only and all employees overseeing such sales will be specially trained in the state laws relating to alcohol, which include selling up to 192 fluid ounces of beer (two six packs) and three liters of wine (about four bottles) at one time.
The store, which will see no expansion to the supermarket end, will spend approximately $500,000 in renovations to handle the new sales.
The liquor license transfer will need to be formally approved by the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board (PLCB), a process of which could take 90 to 120 days.
Newtown Township has previously approved allowing beer and wine sales at the Acme supermarket in the Newtown Shopping Center.
