State announces hours for new West Seattle liquor store

The state Liquor Control Board just sent out a news release to announce what Westwood Village management had revealed last week – the new liquor store on the northeast side of the center opens this Friday. But there’s also some new info – its operating hours: 11 am-7 pm Mondays-Thursdays, 10 am-8 pm Fridays and Saturdays. (No Sundays, for those who asked.) This replaces the Morgan Junction liquor store that closed a year and a half ago.

    It’s just ridiculous that consumers can’t purchase spirits on Sunday (1 of the 2 days a week most of us have off) just because it happens to be the day of worship for Christians. If Rob McKenna wants to talk about unconstitutional, maybe he should sue the state for this! :-)

    Nice of you to respond so quickly, Rob, but back off on the healthcare lawsuit.

    Let’s sell liquor in grocery like most other states, it would save millions! Just think of how much it costs to rent this new store and all of the others. It’s a duplication of what Safeway does every day. They sure don’t seem to have any problems selling beer and wine.

    The State liquor laws of Washington are among some of the worst I’ve experienced in this country (and I’ve seen/lived with some bad ones). It amounts to fascism!! Tell your congressman and if that doesn’t work, tell Tim Eyman to do something most people will actually appreciate him for doing. Repeal the state’s control on our liquor!!! Is it not as simple as getting a referendum on the next ballot??

    DD, I love the idea of getting Timmy involved, but he doesn’t work for free, you can be sure of that. WA should follow the example of New Hampshire, they have several state run stores, all the size of a medium grocery store and they sell everything, CHEAP. You can’t visit Maine or Vermont with out driving past at least one of their mega stores. If the state if going to run it, at least they can run it for us!!

    YES!!! Stumbling distance!!!!

    In all seriousness, that’s a really nice sized location – any word on whether they’ll stock “specialty liquor” items like the 4th Ave store downtown?

    Ha, hard alchohol is super bad for your health compared with wine or beer. Stupid habit.

Sorry, comment time is over.
