Monday, March 17, 2020 - The President and Executive Director of KABR sent a letter to the Office of the Governor urging the State to carefully consider the impacts of shutting down retail activity unless absolutely necessary. (Read the letter.)
"We ask that potential actions relating to retail sales allow our businesses to continue to operate, recognizing that we can provide pickup services under current law – either curbside or in the store. For a store to offer curbside pickup, they must license an area of the parking lot for the transaction. (Liquor delivery is not legal in Kansas.)'"It is possible there could be a need to waive the requirement that curbside pickup services must include licensing an area of the parking lot – perhaps allowing the Division of Alcoholic Beverage Control extra time to approve those diagrams."
