SPOKANE-- Thursday marked the last day Washington State will be in charge of liquor sales, after voters approved initiative 1183. The initiative allows big box stores and private companies to sell booze.
Some reports show liquor could get more expensive. That has some people thinking about they might have to change the shopping and drinking habits.
Voter approved initiative 1183 will allow stores larger than 10,000 square feet, and some smaller stores to sell liquor.
The initiative imposed additional fees on booze to reimburse the state for millions lost in revenue.
Several people said they were buying more than usual Thursday in anticipation of possible higher prices.
