No, it is illegal in the state of MD for grocery stores to carry or sell alcohol.

Also Food Lion in Mitchellville sells beer and wine, so does the 7-11 on Sheriff road, and Noah's grocery mart in Clinton sells beer and wine. It depends.

A variety of stores have old licenses to sell beer and wine that were grandfathered. Today new licenses are limited to stores no greater than 10,000 square feet in size in Prince George's County. State legislation is needed to even allow the transfer of a grandfathered license.

Coming from the deep south where alcohol is sold in grocery stores, I never understood why selling alcohol is illegal in most grocery stores in MD. Seems like a draconian law to me.

There is a decent liquor store in Woodmore TC, right next to Noodles and Company (same building where UPS Store is).

Booze in grocery stores is a foreign concept to this Marylander, but I always liked the organic grocer by Olney/Derwood area (OT I know).

It is. Especially in such a "liberal" state. I predict that law will soon change as surrounding jurisdictions change also. But, it is up to us to change the laws. Apparently, there isn't enough support to change the law. People just don't care enough. They are happy with their Wine and Beer stores.
