Delco to get a wine kiosk

The LCB will roll out the Philly area's first wine machine on Saturday.

Delco to get a wine kiosk


The Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board dropped word late this afternoon that the Philly region's first wine kiosk will open 11 a.m. Saturday (10/16) inside the Fresh Grocer supermarket at 5000 State Rd. in Drexel Hill.

The temperature-controlled machine will stock more than 40 products, ranging in price from $5.99 to $39.99. The kiosk will operate from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m., Mondays through Saturdays.

Eventually, 100 kiosks are planned in stores across the state.

The LCB rolled out two kiosks -- at a Giant in Dauphin County and a Wegmans in Cumberland County -- on June 23. The LCB says more than 7,400 bottles of wine have been sold at the kiosks, which require purchasers to insert photo ID.

While an LCB employee watches the transaction on video, the buyer puffs into a built-in breathalyzer.
