Canton OKs package sales of beer, wine by restaurants

Making permanent a privilege extended to local restaurants to help them weather the COVID-19 pandemic, the Canton City Council has approved an ordinance allowing them to continue package sales of beer and wine.

The measure allows such sales to any customer who also has purchased food, according to the ordinance.

Canton Mayor Bill Grant issued an executive order in March temporarily allowing restaurants with consumption-on-the-premises alcohol licenses to sell unopened bottles of beer and wine with to-go orders of food. The order was issued during a city ban on dining-in at restaurants.
