Bi-Mart takes out license to sell hard alcohol in Deer Park

January 27, 2012

The first changes in Deer Park’s liquor retail sales market, changed abruptly with the passage of Initiative 1185 in November, were felt last week in Olympia.
The Bi-Mart Corp. on Jan. 24 applied for a change in its current liquor license at its Deer Park store at S.412 Main St. to include the sale of spirits once the initiative takes effect in June.
The corporation also applied for the same change in its liquor license for its Cheney store.
Yoke’s Fresh Market, which operates a variety of grocery stores in Eastern Washington, including one in Deer Park, has not yet applied for any liquor license changes.
The Albertson’s grocery store chain has applied for the liquor license change at many of its stores in Spokane County. The store at the Wandermere Shopping Center was not among them.
Fred Meyer, which operates a store across the street from the Wandermere Albertson’s, applied for a spirits retailer license on Jan. 25.
A store must be at least 10,000 square feet to be eligible to sell spirits, according to provisions found in the initiative.
