TULSA, Okla. - QUICK FACTS:
- Starting Oct.1, stronger beer and wine will be available in Oklahoma convenience and grocery stores.
- QuikTrip spokesperson Mike Thornbrugh told FOX23 it's a big deal because it will allow businesses to sell more alcohol and give the customers more options.
- Thornbrugh said the difficult part of the new law is getting all of the necessary licenses needed for stores and employees to sell the stronger alcohol.
- According to Thornbrugh, QuikTrip can't sell beer above 3.2 alcohol content, but with the new law, they will be able to sell beer up to 8.99 percent and wine up to 14.99 percent.
