There will not be a bottle store on every corner
Legislation was updated in 2012; the Sale and Supply of Alcohol Act 2012 expressly prohibits issuing an off-license to a dairy or convenience store.
There is no chance we’d see bottle stores on every corner because the new law also gives local communities greater say about where alcohol can be sold through Local Alcohol Policies.
