Abstract

Article on Maine towns that have local liquor ordinances restricting sales of alcohol. Voters in Sidney last week decided that stores should be allowed to sell spirits Monday through Saturday. Karl Kittredge, owner of Duke's grocery store in Sidney, spearheaded the drive to lift the town's ban on spirits sales. But some store owners, like Dennis Robertson of Eggemoggin Convenience Store in Sedgwick, don't think selling liquor is worth the trouble. Residents in Stonington last year voted to allow the on-premise consumption of beer, wine and liquor. Adelbert Gross, owner of the Harbor Cafe in Stonington, cited liquor sales as the primary reason his revenues are up.
