KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) - If you wish wine was sold in Tennessee grocery stores, you're not alone.
A national grocery chain is pushing for it too.
Kroger says it's trying to bring extra awareness to the issue so lawmakers will take it seriously.
Customers could show their support by signing petitions at many stores in the area, and could also pick up information about wine sales in food stores.
"Overwhelmingly people say, you know, it's ridiculous that we can't buy wine in grocery stores. I vacation in Florida where we can buy wine. I moved here from Georgia where we could buy wine at the grocery stores," said Emily Ogden, Kroger's Tennessee Wine Project Director.
Kroger is also encouraging customers to contact their legislators directly about the issue.
There were three events on Friday and Saturday. Two were at Kroger locations, Cedar Bluff and the Bearden locations.
The third was "Wine on the Water at Volunteer Landing," which also was a benefit for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
