(Harrisburg) -- The state Liquor Control Board is hoping to grab some extra end-of-summer business by extending state store hours this holiday weekend.
More than 100 of the 600 state-owned shops are making the change.
Dale Horst is Director of Retail Operations for the PLCB.
He says the board expects a positive reaction from customers.
"Down the road, we'll evaluate whether it brings us extra sales, and whether the customers like the extra convenience," Horst says.
Critics of the state-run liquor system say privatization would provide more convenience for consumers, but proposals to sell the state stores have stalled in the state capitol.
"We figured out how to do it at a very minimal cost with our labor schedules, so it was a win-win," Horst says.
Horst says the stores can only change their hours Monday through Saturday.
Sunday hours are dictated by legislation.
