Here, you are required to go to the state liquor store, which is open till 7PM at night etc.

Anyone else have this or can you go to a gas station to get a bottle of liqour?

It'* just been the last couple of years that we have had private liquour stores in B.C.

They are strictly regulated by the government though and the prices are usually higher than the government stores.

In Michigan everyone sells beer and wine. Most grocery stores and corner stores sell liquor also. I think some gas stations do, but most just have beer.

In Ontario Canada, Its all controlled by the LCBO (Liquor Control Board of Ontario) It would be nice if you could just walk into any store and by something, You also have to get a temporary liquor liscence to even sell beer at a stag party and so fourth
