Sampling attitudes toward privatization at a state store
WHYY Newsworks, by Dave Davies, September 6, 2011
Ever been to a wine-tasting at a state store? I hadn't either, but I've been following the debate over the proposal in Harrisburg to privatize liquor and wine sales in Pennsylvania, and when I saw on the state Liquor Control Board website they were having many such events, I decided to stop by and see what I could hear.
What I really wanted to do was talk to customers, and ask what they thought of state stores and privatization. Most hadn't even heard of the proposal to close the state stores. But of those who expressed an opinion, a little more than half said they like the state stores just fine, which surprised me.
