Published 1:25pm Thursday, January 16, 2014

Residents of Priceville will soon have a wider variety of wines to choose from at Priceville Foodland and other local retailers as a result of action taken by the town council Monday night

United Johnson Brothers was approved to receive a wholesale wine and beer distributor’s license without its owners having to undergo background checks.

A request to that effect was made by the owners of Foodland a couple of months ago while questioning a requirement that wholesale license applicants must undergo background checks even though they have already undergone background checks to obtain a wholesale distributor’s license from state authorities.
