I understand the CVS's in FL sell wine.. not the ones up here!!

So, do ALL CVS's carry wine? We need to pick up some toiletries there anyway, so if they do, it will save us a stop... Also, any restrictions on time they can sell wine? We were going to go either after dinner Friday night, or early Saturday morning before we head to the pier...

BTW, it is a CVS in CG that I would be going to, if that makes a difference...

Thanks!

Yes, the CVS in Coconut Grove carries beer and wine. The Walgreens in South Beach started carrying beer and wine so I imagine the other ones in Miami do also.

Time restrictions vary by city & county, but if you go Friday evening or Saturday morning you'll have no issues. The cutoff times for sales are typically late night (actually early next am, like 2 am or 3 am); then they generally start selling again early the next morning, around 7 am or so. In some locales, they can't start until later on Sunday mornings but that obviously doesn't affect you.

I don't know if all of them if FL sell beer & wine, but all that I've been in do. Same thing with the Walgreens.
