Liquor Control Board Temporarily Shuts Down Wine Kiosks

HARRISBURG (CBS) – The rollout of those Pennsylvania supermarket wine kiosks has hit a speed bump.

It seems that problems have cropped up with those wine kiosks the Liquor Control Board has been installing in supermarkets. Problems include not dispensing the wine that customers have purchased.

So the LCB shut down the kiosks at 9pm yesterday so the manufacturer can work on the problems.

Since putting the first two prototype models on line this past summer, the LCB has put 30 kiosks in Fresh Grocer, Wegman’s and other supermarkets. In a written statement, the LCB says it will work toward getting the kiosks back on line sometime early next year.
