Alcohol is available for sale in areas within 20 minutes of Ripley, including New Albany and Middleton, Tenn.
Several areas in northeast Mississippi have approved liquor sales recently.
New Albany and Corinth have voted in liquor. Tishomingo County also approved liquor sales.
State law now allows city-only votes on liquor. Previously, all liquor votes in Mississippi have been county-wide, even though liquor and wine can be sold only within municipal boundaries.
