The Durango Herald has an editorial today on efforts to allow full-strength beer to be sold in grocery stores. The piece comes down on the side of the liquor-store owners and brewers, who fear competition from grocery stores would hurt local businesses and jobs. The meat of it:
" ... the profit ... will go to an out-of-state corporation instead of a local liquor store. That business' employees, the guy who used to load the truck in Denver, the truck driver and the salesperson who used to call on the liquor store will all be looking for work.
That is a high price to pay for so little convenience."
