Calvert City is locally referred to as "moist", allowing alcohol sales only by the drink in larger restaurants (seating at least 100). Otherwise, Marshall County is dry. The nearest location with full retail sales is Lyon County, on the other side of the Cumberland River and Lake Barkley, with Kuttawa being the nearest significant town in that county. The larger city of Paducah, slightly farther in the opposite direction, is also wet.




By phone[edit]

Most telephone numbers in Calvert City consist of +1 270 plus a seven-digit number, but the entire Purchase area is now served by an overlay complex of two area codes, with +1 364 as the second. A local or in-state telephone call now requires all 10 digits of the local number be dialed (omitting just the leading +1 from a local landline call).

Signage on many established businesses may still display the original seven-digit numbers; dial 270 before these if no area code is indicated.
