Total Wine & More Pushes for Privatization in Virginia
Total Wine & More has its heart set on privatization in Virginia. The newest Total Wine location in Virginia Beach is modeled after their Seattle store, which can sell beer, wine and spirits since the passage of I-1183. The catch is that in Virginia only Alcoholic Beverage Control stores are allowed to sell spirits. It's only a matter of time, says Total Wine's co-owner David Trone, before Virginia lawmakers embrace "the pure common sense of privatizing spirits," reports The Virginian-Pilot.
