    No idea, same as serving drinks in a bar. Anywhere that alcohol is served you must be 18, or in the case of a store, stocked, sold. We have a few big stores in Miami, the likes of Total wine. These stores have put a hit on some smaller stores, but most have adapted and survived, some have thrived. I specialize in hard to find items and my customers know that, some just stop in and see what is new and talk. Also, lets say you throw a party and have left over booze, Not only will I give a discount and deliver but I will also take returns on unopened bottles.

    Bag boys would not be an issue for a grocery store as I understand the law. Most employees in grocery stores, hotels, bowling alleys, etc. are exempt from the 18 age requirement as long as they are not involved in the sale of alcohol. The issue might be the cashier who rings up the purchase. They might have to be 18 to sell the liquor. Under current law, they are exempt for beer and wine since there is a supervisor on duty. This might apply to liquor if this law passes.

    I don't hire anyone under 21 myself.
