SC Sup Crt strikes down law limiting liquor licenses. Mom-&-pops get hammered

Posted by

The S.C. Supreme Court struck down a law limiting liquor licenses as unconstitutional Wednesday, a potential blow to the mom-and-pop industry that sells most of the hard stuff in South Carolina.

The decision could encourage more big-box chains to expand into the market. It was a victory for the Maryland-based owner of Total Wine & More, which challenged the state law limiting companies to three liquor sales permits.
