where??! I've seen stores where the liquor is CONNECTED to the grocery, but you can't bring your groceries in there and vice versa.

My understanding of this ShopRite is, like Mike said, actually aisles in the grocery store proper. The only difference between this store and ones outside the NE is there are designated aisles if you have liquor.

in all my years in this state i've never see what i describe above.

Yes GRF, you're right! The A&P in Little Falls has a huge liquor section in it. The only problem I encountered during checkout was if the clerk was under 18 or 21, then, they'd have an older person ring up the charge.

I do not understand the thing where Ridgewood doesn't allow Whole Foods to sell alcohol, but Stop & Shop can????

I just spent two weeks in Ocala, Florida and yes you can buy your beer or wine in the grocery store. I'm not a big drinker but I I don't see why beer, wine or whatever can't be sold in a grocery store for convenience. Just another example of New Jersey government bureaucracy that only serves to complicate what should be a simple transaction. Life is already too complicated with too many silly government edits for this type of crap !!!

wha-what? I lived in Little Falls and don't remember this!! Is it the *same* exact thing as southern states - groceries and wine in the same cart - checked out by the same person (except over 21?) - I've been living under a rock!

It's that big A&P on 46! Just down a bit from where the Shop-Rite and Pathmark face each other from the opposite sides of 46. But unlike NC , you can buy hard liquor in it. NC has those stupid ABC stores for the hard stuff!

Your gov't doesn't even trust you to pump your own gas. It's no surprise to me that you can't buy beer/wine in a grocery.

Shop-Rite in Middletown has a limited alcohol aisle with it's own register (and they close it off during certain hours). Wegmans in Manalapan has a huge liquor store adjacent to the supermarket. It has its own entrance but it also has a door in between the two stores. You have to check out alcohol purchases at the wine shoppe's registers but you're free to mosey on back over to the paper towels or international food section immediately before or after that!
