Finding liquor retailers in Spokane: handy online map at SR.com

Wednesday's major SR business story is the summary of the variety of retailers (90 and counting) planning to sell booze come June 1, when I-1183 takes effect.

Here's an online map, tooled by the SR's Mike Tigas, that displays those 90 stores: http://data.spokesman.com/i1183-transition/liquor-retailer-licensees/

Also worth checking is the state list of all applicants to date, at http://liq.wa.gov/records/frequently-requested-lists and click on the link for "off-premises licensees."  Note, that list includes applicants for both beer/wine and for spirits. You would need to sort the full list to see just the spirits applications.

Brian Smith, of the state liquor board, said the agency has been "working overtime" to add new names to the list. That list should be new every Monday, Smith said.

Good luck finding a store that DOESN'T sell liquor in June.
