Wegmans has notified the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board that the supermarket chain will no longer be participating in the state's wine kiosk program. The LCB was asked by Wegmans to remove the high-tech wine vending machines from its 10 stores within the next 30 days.
Wegmans reportedly feels that the machines have not been reliable and the company has been getting too many complaints from customers. The LCB has 32 wine kiosks throughout the Pennsylvania including kiosks at Wegmans in Allentown, Lower Nazareth Township and Hanover Township, Northampton County. Wines sell in the vending machines for about the same prices as in state Wine & Spirits stores, but there is a $1 convenience fee per transaction.
