DENVER (CBS4)– At the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic and stay-at-home orders in Colorado, Gov. Jared Polis allowed alcohol sales with takeout and delivery service.

Now, the Colorado Restaurant Association is pushing a bill in the state Senate that would allow those sales to continue for another two years.

The association says keeping alcohol to-go sales in effect would help businesses increase revenue while they have to make changes inside to abide by social distancing guidelines.

During the stay-at-home executive order during the first phase of the coronavirus pandemic, restaurants were allowed to remain open, but they could only offer delivery and takeout service.

    Why are we even considering the option of continuing to take business away from locally owned retail liquor stores?????? They are suffering enough!!
    First the Grocery stores get to take a HUGE portion of the business and those profits “leave” the state!!! This HURTS Colorado business!!! What ever happened to support local????
    NOW, we are considering letting Restaurants (yet again, mostly corporate entities and probably out of state”) continuing to sell to-go liquor sales???
    How about Grocery stores stay in their lane and restaurants stay in their lane and retail stays in their lane???
