Washingtonians Coming to Idaho for Liquor

(MOSCOW) – Liquor sales are on the rise in Northern Idaho, a trend officials link to the privatization of liquor stores across the state line in Washington.

Washington closed its state-run liquor stores in May, prompting many people to come to the Gem State for booze.

Sales are up 40 percent in the college town of Moscow, just a few miles east of Pullman, home of Washington State University.

Sales have also gone up 40 percent in Post Falls.
