DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) – Alabama Rep. Gil Isbell sponsored a bill recently passed at Alabama House that will make it easier for customers to purchase alcohol, such as allowing stores like Last Call Spirits to have a drive-thru or walk-in window.

Currently, 30 out of 50 states currently offer drive-thru services.

“We’re ready to do that, we’re very flexible. I’m a bit skeptical about other things that have happened, but at the same time, if it works, but if the customers want it, we want it for them. “said owner Dan Forrest. .

Forrest is a little apprehensive about the idea because the last time the state approved a liquor bill was for door-to-door deliveries — a game-changer at the height of the pandemic.

But for Last Call Spirits, the delivery option wasn’t used as much as Forrest envisioned, as customers pay more to have the drinks delivered.

However, the drive-thru or walk-in window will not come with a surcharge and customers are almost eager for the idea.

“Really, it will be a great idea for all liquor stores to do this, you can have someone running the window and the store because a lot of people don’t want to come in,” customer Austin Sanford said.

“Some customers have to come here and give us high fives and hugs and that’s fine, but they probably won’t use it as much, maybe our young, elderly, single ladies, for security reasons, I can see it work,” Forrest said.

The bill is in the Senate and if approved, it will become law on January 1, 2023.
