Alcohol Sales Becomes a Reality in Andrews 12/19/13
CBS 7 News
Andrews alcohol sales are now a reality for three local stores. Allsups, One Stop, and 7-11 all have beer to sell. Since the city is now wet, Budweiser employees say they brought in about 1,600 boxes to the three stores today.
Spencer Sipko with Budweiser says they're the only three they've delivered to that have their license today. He says the trip is a little farther and labor intensive but they're more than happy to bring the beer here.
People we spoke to in favor tell us this will reduce the amount of drunk driving accidents from Odessa and will help with taxes. Those opposed say this will just worsen the problem with the alcohol more readily available. Others say they had no real preference but it was bound to happen with the growth in the city.
