Allentown Wegmans makes room for wine on its shelves

Champagne is on the shelves for Wegmans shoppers who want to celebrate in Allentown.

The store at Tilghman Street will be able to sell wine starting Wednesday, one of four Wegmans stores in Pennsylvania that will start selling wine this week. The other three stores are: King of Prussia, Downingtown and Montgomeryville.

The Allentown store's cellar is near the entrance for the Pub at Wegmans, and was carved out of the beer section. The coolers lining the walls are still for six packs, but a smaller cooler will have a few bottles chilled and ready to go.

The Allentown store has dedicated shelves for local vineyards and wineries, as well as a display with wine glasses and corkscrews.

Wegmans has applied for wine permits for all 17 of its stores in Pennsylvania. By Nov. 17, the company's goal is to offer between 400 to 800 wines in each store.

A Wegmans in Mechanicsville launched a pilot program in September with the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board to sell 80 different wines. With the new legislation signed by Gov. Tom Wolf this past summer, the Mechanicsville store will now sell 800 varieties, according to our sister website Pennlive.com.

"We have wanted this for our customers for so long," Wegmans Sr. Vice President Nicole Wegman said in a news release. "The convenience of shopping for wine and beer in the same place you shop for food, just in time for the holidays, is a win for Pennsylvania consumers."
