A grocery store in Whitesburg is the first business to apply for a license to sell packaged alcohol.
The Mountain Eagle reports Food City took that step this week.
People in Whitesburg voted more than 2-1 to allow packaged alcohol sales in the city.
The city is expected to qualify for two packaged stores.
They will be able to sell liquor, wine, and beer.
