Q&A: Advertising drink prices


From the Paoli News-Republican:

Q: Is it legal to advertise drink specials (prices) in a newspaper or shopper?

A: Yes, a drinking establish­ment can advertise drink specials for a particular day.

Where they can get in trouble is:

• Advertising happy hour specials (advertised price must be the same all day).

• Advertising a require­ment that customers must buy two drinks to get a special price.

The bar or tavern owner should be aware of those types of restrictions.
