McLanahan’s Applying For License To Sell Beer And Wine

Those lucky enough to be in Happy Valley this summer have surely noticed these bright orange signs in the window of McLanahan’s: a public notice the downtown Penn State store and grocery store is applying for a license to sell alcoholic beverages.

McLanahan’s might not be your next thirsty Thursday bar hangout, but managers hope the store will soon be able to sell grab-and-go beer and wine, similar to how alcohol sales currently work at Sheetz on Pugh Street.

McLanahan’s decided to move in this direction after hearing feedback from customers on what they would like to see in the store.

“We want to please our customers,” a manager said via phone. “People have been coming in and asking, especially on big weekends, ‘Where’s the beer?'”

Managers aren’t sure how long the application process could take through Pennsylvania’s Liquor Control Board, but they hope to start selling wine and beer as soon as possible if the application is approved.
