Eh, I dunno then. Only bottleshops can sell grog here, of any sort, not corner stores and supermarkets.
Hopefully your government will keep a close eye on shit, though to be fair, you can get just as trashed on beer and wine that are already sold at these private stores (and go take a drive, or whatever) as you can on spirits, so I think your point is kind of moot anyway.
Edit: And I truly doubt your prices will go up, either. More stores selling spirits should mean more competition, and so the prices might actually go down.
Prices will most likely go down, since Costco and the other big stores will be able to buy in bulk and negotiate with producers to get lower costs than the state was able to.
Also, the government is going to be getting more tax money from the new system, which will end up with more money going towards alcohol-abuse prevention.
We'll see what happens.
Nou, the current liquor stores most likely won't disappear, also. They will just be run by private businesses. And yes, a store devoted completely to liquor is fucking awesome
