The state’s liquor stores first closed March 17th as part of the state’s COVID-19 business closures.

All of the stores which will re-open are in the counties that will be moving into the “yellow phase” of the state’s COVID-19 measures, which is primarily centered in the northern and western part of Pennsylvania.

The stores will abide by the guidance for businesses issued by the governor’s office. Each location has been professionally cleaned. Plexiglass was installed at the registers to protect employees and customers.

Plus, all employees are being provided with masks, gloves and they will be given frequent opportunities to wash their hands. The stores will frequently be cleaned and disinfected.

The following measures will also be put into place in these stores:

  • No more than 25 people (employees and customers) will be allowed in any location at a time. Further restrictions may be in place in smaller stores.
  • The first hour each store is open will be reserved for customers at high risk of COVID-19 (including seniors).

Additionally, a "one traffic way pattern" will be implemented in the store. All sales will be final and no returns will be accepted until further notice.

The 77 stores will be open in Bradford County, Centre County, Clarion County, Clearfield County, Clinton County, Crawford County, Elk County, Erie County, Jefferson County, Lawrence County, Lycoming County, McKean County, Mercer County, Montour County, Northumberland County, Potter County, Snyder County, Sullivan County, Tioga County, Union County, Venango County, and Warren County.
