2/27/17 ST PAUL, MN – Tony Chesak, executive director of the Minnesota Licensed Beverage Association, issued the following statement in response to Sunday sales passing the Minnesota Senate:

“Today’s vote may seem like the popular decision to some, but its impact on small, family-owned liquor stores will be negative. Small, family-owned liquor stores and consumers throughout Minnesota will see higher costs because of this,” said Chesak. “As the legislature considers other proposals impacting our industry, we ask legislators to keep a level playing field so smaller stores can fairly compete against big box retailers.”

The Minnesota Licensed Beverage Association represents Minnesota’s mostly small, family-owned liquor retailers, both on sale (bars and restaurants) and off-sale (liquor stores).
