(Harrisburg) -- Pennsylvania liquor stores are set to introduce lottery sales.

The state Liquor Control Board plans to talk about lottery sales and several other changes coming to wine and spirits stores at the grand opening of a new premium store in Manchester Township, York County, later today.

Lottery sales are now allowed at liquor stores under a new law that went into effect earlier this week.

The legislation allows for the sale of self-service games like instant ticket machines. 

The new law extends stores' operation hours.

Stores are no longer required to be closed on holidays and lifts restrictions on Sunday operations.
