All Hail Bute Street Liquor Store!!
Might not be new to everyone here but it is to me.
The Signature store that formerly was on Alberni appears to have moved/morphed into a great new Bute St location.
Brightly (but not too brightly) lit shiny sparkling and well displayed it's a joy to shop in IMO the categories are better organised than the iconic Cambie St store.
PS-If you think we're overcharged for booze @ Govt stores take a trip through a Liquor Barn some sunny day.
BC Liquor store
1155 Bute St
Yes Liquor Barn on #3 Rd in Richmond-a clip joint extraordinaire if ever there was one.
One small example of out and out gouging-Gray Monk Rotberger
Liquor Barn #3 Rd Richmond BC price as of late July $20.99!!!
I think their tacky/flashy flier has put stars in your eyes-look @ the everyday prices-they are extortionate.
the Government is overcharging because they set the prices, Liquor barn is just trying to make a profit, it buys its liquor from the BC government, so in order to make money they have to mark it up. Also the best selections of beers and wines in the city are at Liquor Barns, the one on 4th and Vine, Kitsilano Wine Cellar and the equivalent beer store on Broadway and Blenheim. Absolutely annihilate the Government stores on selection, they carry more than just the Bud, Pilsner, Smirnoff and Naked grape.
