Aug 8, (THAINDIAN NEWS) The U.S. state of Pennsylvania that has one of the strictest alcohol laws in America has introduced wine vending machines that will allow people to shop their alcohol according to their need. The wine vending machines that have been manufactured by Simple Brands have been introduced at two Supermarkets in Pennsylvania for initial tests. The manufacturers hope to expand the self help kiosks to other places as well in the near future.
The new vending machines have the capacity to hold 700 temperature controlled bottles whose prices range from $7 to $23. The hi-tech machines put to use high security techniques that check the age proof of a customer. The kiosks also go for breathalyzer test of the customers before dispensing wine. All these features of the kiosks not only keep in mind the alcohol laws of the state but also the comfort of the customers. James Lesser, the CEO of Simple Brands said that in today’s world one can not only buy tickets at self-service checkouts but also hi-tech gadgets and iPods in vending machines at airports and added that self-service is really becoming more popular with every passing year.
However, the Chairman of the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Boards, Patrick Stapleton has said to media sources that the technology of the wine vending machine though seems promising it needs to pass stringent tests at its pilot phase. Patrick Stapleton said that the board needs to ensure that the technology is “safe and secure” for the public. Until the introduction of the wine vending machine, wine used to be sold at state-owned shops.
