Liquor Distribution Branch April 9, 2013

This change is another step towards ensuring Rural Agency stores continue to serve British Columbians throughout the province and remain successful moving forward. Building on a commitment to help Rural Agency stores succeed, the Province has worked with the Rural Agency Store Advisory Society (RASAS) to negotiate a discount on their liquor purchases.

Effective April 28, 2013, Rural Agency stores will enjoy an increase of 2 percent to their discount to make it a total of 12 percent off of all of their wine, spirits and beer purchased. – Minister Rich Coleman announced changes today that will help support Rural Agency stores, while continuing to build on recent revisions to the current liquor laws in British Columbia.
