LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11)—The 6th Circuit Court of Appeals has made a ruling in the case of grocery stores and gas stations being able to sell liquor and wine.

The court has ruled that they will not rehear the case that would have allowed the expanded alcohol said. In January they decided to keep the 76year old ban that prevents the sale of hard liquors in those types of stores.

Some stores, like Evergreen Liquors in Middletown had their outside sign flashing “We Win Again” on Friday.

Stores like Kroger wanted the expanded liquor sales, but many liquor stores are opposed to letting that happen.

Kroger did not comment on the ruling, but can still appeal the case to the U.S. Supreme Court or ask the Kentucky legislature to change the law to allow the sale of wine.
