The State Liquor Authority sent decoys who were under 21 to 911 grocery stores, pharmacies and liquor stores — and 58% of them sold alcohol to the underage investigators.

Investigators caught hundreds of city stores selling booze to underage kids, officials said Sunday.

The State Liquor Authority sent decoys who were under 21 to 911 grocery stores, pharmacies and liquor stores across the five boroughs — and 58% of them sold alcohol to the underage investigators.

The stores face fines starting at $2,500 and up to $10,000 for repeat offenders.

The Liquor Authority’s sting of retailers peddling booze to kids was created with a $147,000 grant from the city Health Department.
