Seattle Deals

Washington State Liquor No More

The Washington Liquor Control Board who once had a monopoly of all liquor sold in Washington State will be auctioning off the remaining inventory on Thursday.  Approximately 15,000 cases of alcohol will be sold to the highest bidder.  They stated it’s value is over $1 million dollars.  That seems kind of high to me personally that would mean each bottle averages over $66.50.  I highly doubt it.  After these are sold the state will work to auction off the distribution center which is self appraised at $30 million dollars.  I sure would like to self appraise my house.

You’ll obviously need a liquor license to participate in this “sweet deal of a lifetime”.  Plus, a $5K cashier check on your person for a deposit.

Word on the streets is that all the people who participated in the last auction paying hundreds of thousands of dollars for a liquor store are not doing so well right now.  Several have closed already.  Which would make sense.  The state had a monopoly and now it’s in every store.  Plus, you started your business several hundreds of thousands of dollars in the hole.  Not sure why anyone would pay that much for a bad investment.  If you run into one of these people send them my way – I got a house to sell them.

Now if only we could get rid of most of Washington Liquor Control Board.

Seattle Deal Of The Week!

Everyone once in a while we have to break the rules so this week we’re listed two deals.  The first deal is a one day only deal (Today!) and the other follow-ups on a previous article about Easy And Simply Ways To Save Money.  In the article I spoke about shopping for a new insurance company if you’ve been with them for 2 or more years.  The reality is that after you’re with an insurance company your rates rarely go down.  In most cases they add on a few dollars per year.  However, the open market changes.  You car value decreases or your home values decrease for example – and your current insurance provider doesn’t take those into account.  They already have you as a customer (probably on auto billing) so why would they bother.  My point is to save a few dollars you should make a few calls and see what the options are.  Won’t cost you anything and if the quotes are not better then you still have your current insurance company.  It’s a Win/Win.

Today Only -Deal:

The Childrens Place – are offering 20% off and free shipping and handling.  Everything ships free and there is no minimum purchase required.  Some items are marked at $1.99!

Coupon: G9HEF67J92 if you need it at checkout, however, it looks like they are offering the deal on their homepage.
