Northland Center Giant Gets Liquor License
The Northland Center Giant may not be selling beer by Memorial Day, but it has gotten one step closer.
The Ferguson Township Board of Supervisors approved a liquor license transfer last night between Potter Township and Ferguson Township to Giant Food Stores, 255 Northland Center.
A public hearing on May 7 was pushed through to a resolution on the authorization Monday night at the supervisor's meeting.
Approval by the board is only one hurdle for Giant. The Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board still has to accept the conditions set forth by the board of supervisors for the transfer to be finalized.
A spokesman for Giant said the final application will be submitted for approval by the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board, which will put into motion the construction of a café-like dining area where patrons can also purchase beer.
It will be beer only, no wine or liquor.
Should the Liquor Control Board accept the application, this will be the third Giant with beer purveying privileges in the region, with one in the Poconos and another in Indiana, Pennsylvania.
Currently, the only State College supermarket with a café-style setup with beer and other alcoholic beverages available for purchase is Wegmans, 345 Colonnade Blvd.
