Winning bids for 19 Snohomish County liquor stores

By Chuck Taylor

The Washington State Liquor Control Board on Monday announced the winning bidders for the rights to operate 167 state-run outlets, including 19 in Snohomish County. The auction, which raised $30.7 million statewide, was held as part of the state’s transition to private liquor sales. Here are the winning bids for those local stores. Five additional stores in Clearview, Darrington, Granite Falls, Mountlake Terrace and Sultan are already privately owned contract outlets not subject to the auction.
