Philadelphia opens way for package stores

PHILADELPHIA, Miss. — The city of Philadelphia's new liquor ordinance will allow for the sale of wine and liquor of more than 5 percent alcohol by weight in restaurants and package stores.

It was adopted this past week by the board of aldermen.

The Neshoba Democrat reports (http://bit.ly/12g08ZA ) that the city is petitioning the Mississippi Department of Revenue to allow liquor and wine to be sold in restaurants and other such establishments from 10 a.m. to midnight on Sundays.

The ordinance will take effect in about 30 days. It would take four to six weeks before a liquor permit would be issued. There are permits for restaurants, package stores, wholesale businesses, catering businesses, temporary businesses and private clubs.

Philadelphia voters approved liquor sales on June 4.
