Shopping has become a chore especially with online retailers making it so convenient to shop from your couch! But now a new law may convince you to get up off that couch and go into the store.
A proposed law in Virginia could expand an open-container alcohol law to smaller shopping centers.
WJLA says currently, only developments on at least 25 acres can apply for what’s called a “Commercial lifestyle center license.”
A bill recently introduced in the Virginia General Assembly would shrink the required acreage down to 10. That would let smaller shopping centers apply for the licenses.
The idea is to help smaller businesses compete with online sellers by making shopping more of an experience.
The General Assembly could consider the bill as early as next week.
