Whitesburg KY

Beer sales spread to Walmart

Walmart is the fourth retailer in Whitesburg to be issued a retail beer license by the Kentucky Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control.

Walmart received a retail beer license on November 9 and began selling alcohol on November12.

Food City, East Kentucky Discount Tobacco and Beer, and Rite Aid began selling beer after getting their licenses in late October.

The sales are the result of a June election in which Whitesburg residents voted by a margin of more than two to one to expand alcohol sales from restaurant only.

Still to be determined is the awarding of two licenses to sell liquor and wine by the package.
