KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Retailers of all sorts are working hard to get creative to stay open.

On Thursday, the Kansas Division of Alcoholic Beverage Control announced steps to help alcoholic beverage distributors and liquor stores.

Under new guidance, liquor license holders will be allowed to operate curbside sales to customers.

The guidance requires a designated “to-go” parking area that’s within 50 feet of the entrance to the business.

Additionally, restaurants are allowed to sell bottles of beer and wine in their original containers alongside curbside meals. The beverages are required to have a tamper-resistant seal and must be accompanied with a receipt.

The full memo is available on the state’s website.
