  • Found Family Books for the Holidays
    The holidays are quickly approaching and for some of us that means seeing our family. However, family has a loose definition. It could mean blood or who you were raised with.

  • Books I Started but Never Finished
    My biggest book insecurity is not finishing a book. Even if I don’t care for the story I will usually try to still finish it. I’ve been known to force myself into finishing books I absolutely hate. I’m afraid of wasting time, but in my head if I’ve already read more than halfway it would […]

Kroger buys BG Liquor Outlet’s spirituous liquor license

As of March 10, BG Liquor Outlet stopped selling spirituous liquor.

Spirituous liquor is any alcohol above 24 proof.

Instead, the license was purchased by Kroger located on North Main Street, said Adam Foster, cashier at Kroger.

In order to sell any alcohol, a business must obtain a license from the Ohio Division of Liquor Control. There is a finite number of licenses that can be purchased in a county based on population.

Kroger started selling spirituous liquor on March 11, Foster said.

BG Liquor Outlet still sells wine, beer and liquor below 24 proof and is still running the growler tap, said Clerk Nick Miller.

When The BG News visited the liquor store on Sunday, an owner wasn’t present to explain the reason for the sale to Kroger.

The store was only open on Sunday because of St. Patrick’s Day, but it will likely continue its normal hours of operation of Monday through Wednesday from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Thursday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 11 p.m.

Kroger’s liquor department is open Monday through Wednesday from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. and on Thursday through Saturday from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m., Foster said.
