Wisconsin Liquor Store Owners React To Proposed Bill

HUDSON, Wis. (WCCO) — A Wisconsin lawmaker is proposing a bill that would allow retailers to see liquor at 6 o’clock in the morning.

Some law enforcement officials are afraid it could lead to an increase in alcohol abuse.

However, some liquor sale owners and managers don’t think it will make much difference.

Kelli Moore manages Casanova Liquors in Hudson.

“I think in order to pay someone to open the doors and pay someone to turn on the lights, it’s not going to be worth it in revenue to stay open the extra hours,” she said.

Supporters say it will allow early shoppers to buy alcohol.

    “See” liquor or “Sell” liquor? Just seeing liquor at 6:00 is pretty tame (they can probably do that now if they don’t sell it), but I’ll bet the bill actually allows the retailers to sell liquor at 6:00.

      How would retailers being able to see liquor result in increased alcoholism? Now if the customers could see the liquor, there could be trouble afoot.


    What time can the bars start selling? I work overnights and if I want to go out for a cold one its in those morning hours.
