§ 54-a. License to sell beer and wine products at retail for consumption off the premises.
1. Any person may apply to the appropriate board for a license to sell beer and wine products at retail not to be consumed upon the premises where sold.

2. No such license shall be issued, however, to any person for any premises other than a grocery store, drug store, or duly licensed supply ship operating in harbors in Lake Erie.
3. Such license shall contain a description of the licensed premises and in form and in substance shall be a license to the person specifically designated therein to sell beer and wine products at retail in the premises specifically licensed, not to be consumed upon said premises.
