Delhi: Drinkers line up at liquor stores

Liquor stores must run out of stock by the end of March as licenses will be renewed in the new fiscal year, a liquor sales employee in East Delhi has said. “There are also some brands that haven’t resumed sales and retailers want to eliminate them through discounts and special offers like ‘buy one, get one free,'” he said. he declares.

A senior Excise Department officer said several other factors such as social distancing norms followed at liquor stores, wedding season and weekends were also behind the long queues.

A liquor trade expert said people were buying in large quantities due to falling rates. “The rush was more in stores located closer to the border towns of Haryana and Uttar Pradesh due to competition among retailers there to attract more customers,” he said.
