The Pennsylvania Food Merchants Association (PFMA), the state’s advocate for food retailers, applauds the Pennsylvania House Liquor Control Committee for moving House Bill 790 forward in support of reforming Pennsylvania’s alcohol sales system. PFMA urges all members, associates and their customers to ask their lawmakers to support HB 790.

“Visit FreeMyBeer.com today and send a message to your legislators,” says Alex Baloga, PFMA director of government relations. “Tell your representatives that your local supermarket and convenience store should be able to provide convenient alcohol sales to their customers.”

HB 790, as amended in committee, reforms beer, liquor and wine sales and is a significant step forward for Pennsylvanians.

“We’re asking all PFMA members, their employees and customers to ask their legislators to bring convenience and choice to Pennsylvania,” says PFMA President and CEO David McCorkle. “This plan will also return wine, spirit and beer sales that are now going to Maryland, Delaware, New Jersey, Washington D.C., Ohio and other surrounding states.”

FreeMyBeer.com allows anyone over the age of 21 to type in their address, locate their legislator and send them a message to support beer and wine sales in grocery and convenience stores. Visitors also can join the conversation about alcohol sales reform on the Free My Beer Facebook page here, and they can ask their friends to get involved by sending them an email at the site.
