Wine vending machines open in grocery stores
DAUPHIN COUNTY, Pa. — The state Liquor Control Board unveiled its do-it-yourself wine kiosks at the Giant store on Linglestown Road in Susquehanna Township, Dauphin County, Wednesday.
The kiosks have built-in id scanners and Breathalyzers. They are the only such kiosks in the country.
Buyers insert their driver’s license into the kiosk, where age information on the bar code is processed.
The photo on the driver’s license is matched with a video image of the buyer at the kiosk. A Liquor Control Board employee will monitor each transaction from a remote location and confirm that the video of the buyer matches the buyer’s ID.
