The new Shoprite in Cinnaminson has a self contained liquor store! Or, as my FIL says - "One stop shopping!"

I thought our liquor laws forbid this. I know some stores have a liquor store next to them, but you couldn't cross pollinate. I guess that's changed.

The only different than other states where you can buy booze in the supermarket is they have designated checkouts if you are buying the hootch.

There's an A & P Supermarket here in the Fort Lee, NJ area that has always been one-stop shopping though I'm not a huge A & P fan.

No, not in Wharton anyway the liquor store has it 's own check out..as you would walk to leave the store it would be to the left with it's own gate that gets closed & locked @ 10pm because there is liquor in there..beer & wine can be sold after 10pm but not the hard stuff

Separate section in the Netcong one... had it's own cashier but you could walk thru the store afterwards with your booze to get groceries. Same building..same entrance..
