Beer & Wine Could Flow in Mills River, N.C.

Voters going to the polls in Mills River, N.C., will get the chance to cast ballots on three separate alcohol propositions next month.

Voters will decide on separate ballot questions that would permit the sale of beer and wine at convenience stores and supermarkets, and the sale of beer and wine at hotels and restaurants.

Proponents of the measures say local residents now drive out of town to buy beer and wine, which costs businesses additional sales and results in a loss of tax revenue for the community. The lack of ability to sell beer and wine is also given as a reason that some chain restaurants have not placed a location in the growing community.
