No, that's not the reason we go shopping in Georgia. We buy groceries in Georgia because we can buy wine along with the other ingredients needed to cook and enjoy a fine meal. Tennessee's prohibition on selling wine in grocery stores is backward, and drives people out of state.

After living in North Carolina for 15 years and paying a state income tax, I am very appreciative of living in a state since 2005 that does NOT have one. If we all do our part, we can help our state pay it's bills.

It would cost me too much in gasoline $ to do that.

While I wish wine was sold in grocery stores, it's not worth the trip to Georgia because the people are yucky.

wyldmon,

While I certainly agree that people in Georgia are "yucky" as you put it, there really is no difference between them and people from Tennessee.
