The first day of private liquor sales begins on June 1st, and that means the last of the state-run stores are closing. In Lower Queen Anne/Uptown, the store on 1st Ave. N. is closing May 29th.
It will be open on Memorial Day, and it’s selling the last bottles at discount prices. We saw quite a few bottles still on the shelves.
The store sold in an auction in April for $250,100, and we’ve filed a public records request with the Liquor Control Board to learn who purchased the location. The Interbay store on 15th Ave. will close on May 31st.
