SUPERSTORE OPENED IN LANCASTER COUNTY BY PENNSYLVANIA LIQUOR CONTROL BOARD

 HARRISBURG, Pa., Oct. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- The Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board officially opened the state's fifth wine and spirits superstore today in Lancaster.
 Measuring more than 9,000 square feet, the Hawthorne Centre Wine and Spirits Shoppe, 2076 Fruitville Pike, is the largest store of its kind in south central Pennsylvania. It features about 3,500 wine and spirit items including some 1,200 premium products.
 The Wein Garten, the store's premium wine section, provides wines from all over the world in an atmosphere as warm and welcoming as its Pennsylvania Dutch name. In addition to a wide selection of premium wines, the Wein Garten provides consumers with a sitting area complete with product reference materials and reviews from respected wine journals.
 The Hawthorne Centre Wine and Spirits Shoppe is attractively decorated in gray and burgundy with carpet and tile flooring, wide aisles and neon lighting. A number of energy efficiencies have also been implemented in the store as part of the PLCB's efforts to reduce energy costs. The Pennsylvania Energy Office presented Board Member Oliver L. Slinker with the Green Lights Governor's Energy Award for the board's attention to energy conservation.
 The PLCB opened its first superstore in Allentown in August of 1990. Since then, other superstores have been established in Ardmore, Philadelphia and Pittsburgh and more are planned.
 Hawthorne Centre Wine and Spirits Shoppe is open Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. and Thursday and Friday from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. Loran Getz, a PLCB employee since 1970, is the store's general manager.
