Wegmans, Avenue Kitchen get liquor license

Concord Township supervisors granted two liquor license transfers to two as yet unopened businesses.

Wegmans Supermarket, expected to open in early November, and Avenue Kitchen, expected to open in June were the beneficiaries of the decisions made during a special Feb. 24 meeting.

Both businesses must abide by township codes and specific conditions placed on their operations.

All alcoholic beverage sales at Wegmans are limited to its pub, café and designated outdoor seating area. The pub may operate from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday and from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday.

Beer sales in the café are allowed from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 8 a.m. to 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday. Takeout beer sales are allowed, but quantities are limited to 192 ounces.

Live entertainment is limited to music only and only in the pub and café.

Supervisors’ Chairman Dominic Pileggi said the hours of operations are consistent with other Wegmans’ operations.

Wegmans, still under construction, will join Acme and Whole Foods as supermarkets that sell alcoholic beverages.

Also getting a liquor license transfer is Avenue Kitchen, planned for the Qdoba location in Glen Eagle Square.

It, too, must abide by township permits and stop selling alcohol at midnight Sunday through Thursday and at 1 a.m. on Friday and Saturday. Takeout beer is prohibited, as is outdoor entertainment.
