It is not surprising how much liquor sells in Virginia. The part that remains surprising is the ridiculous state controlled liquor monopoly. Why do we need state-run liquor stores–who do not see profit as their goal? I also find it ridiculous that a state agency decides which liquors will and will not be available in Virginia–and they balk when special orders are requested. Good thing that Delaware is such an easy drive. I can get most anything I want there–and I can buy it at lower prices from people who are employed in the private sector.

You can buy liquor for much less in DC. A good bottle of bourbon is $46 in Virginia, the same is $26 in DC. No excuse for the monopoly. The State should not be in the retail business. It is not a function of government.

The state owned liquor distribution arose out of the ashes of Prohibition. It is actually quite an effective way to regulate and tax the distribution of spirits, which I support along with many others.

In fact, it provides a fantastic model for how Virginia could distribute cannibas if the current prohibition were to end. I say add cannibas to the menu and let the profits roll in to support our schools, parks, and infrastructure.

I love this idea. Think of the old hippies who could get jobs if they did this! This sounds like an old Cheech and Chong story!

A love how the facts are used and not explained. I am certain that very few citizens go to Hermitage Rd in Richmond to buy anything. The state warehouse sells to the restaurants and like establishments not the public.

How many restaurants buy their booze from this store? Because they all dont go to the one
by the diamond.

Right now we should be happy that the state is not broke like some of the others. With the help of liquor sold here in VA.
