The State Government wants to allow supermarkets to sell wine. They say it will help the local wine industry.
We support SA wines but this proposal will open the floodgates for Woolworths, Coles, Aldi and the big grocery groups to put alcohol in their aisles, as well as in all the bottleshops they already own.
And history says they’re not going to be looking after the small, independent local wineries. They will simply fill the shelves with brands they own.
Plus, they will be selling liquor next door to real, independent family owned bottle shops and hotels, who already stock SA wines.
Guess who will have to close or lay off staff?
Let’s draw the line.
Bottle shops and pubs for liquor. Supermarkets for groceries.
