Report: Pa. liquor board allows shipments to homes

    This could make the holidays go down a little easier for some:

    The Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board says people can now have wine and liquor shipped to home and business addresses.

    The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports that the Liquor Control Board quietly made the change last week.

    Previously, customers could order a specific wine or whiskey and pick it up only at a state-run store.

    The newspaper reports shipping fees will include a charge of $14 for an order of between one and three bottles and an additional dollar for each bottle beyond that.

    Shipments will also require a signature and a valid photo ID at delivery.
