I think this is another of those Nevada thingies...like taxicabs and limos...

Three tiers - one imports or manufactures. One wholesales. One retail. One can deal only up or down. No skipping levels. No between members of a level. Someplace in here is buried a way for wholesalers to make a lot of money.

There are no alcoholic beverage control laws in Nevada. So all the regulation is local. State just collects a tax.

I just guessing here, but I had a friend once who owned a bar and if I remember correctly, there is a license for package liqueur and a license to sell drinks. Both are/were very expensive and hard to come by. There is/was a regulation as to how many licenses could be issued in a given radius. They had to be a certain distance from each other and they had to be a certain distance from a school or church. That may not be the case now, and I do see liqueur being sold in stores right next to each other such as grocery and drug stores.

There is no shortage of places to buy liqueur in Las Vegas, but there may be no mom and pop stores for the same reason you don't see mom and pop grocery stores where Wal-Mart has taken over. Too much competition from the big boys to make a living.

On my block there are two mom and pop liquor stores. The Huntridge Tavern sells liquor to go and so does the Speakeasy liquor/convenience store. These places are simply convenient, much like Circle K or whatever, but for real selection and good deals, nothing beats Lee's. Actually, Lee's could be considered Mom and Pop, since it is family owned and operated.

Since Capt. has stocked up, we should convince him to throw a party!

this may sound bad, but walmart has great prices. 29 bucks for Grey Goose, how does that get any cheaper. Even Patron is cheaper there. 39 bucks as opposed to 56 in most liquor stores I've been in.

Yeah, Walmart seems to have the cheapest prices in town. That company is scary, they seem to sell everything under cost until someone goes out of biz. One thing I can say they don't sell cheap is Swimming Pool Supplies and Chemicals.

theres a place that sells hennesy timeless. really good stuff but a bit pricey. if youre looking for that, its in the 99 ranch store in the "china town" part of vegas. well i guess its politically incorrect to call it china town since theres also malay, japanese, korean, and some filipino establishments there.

funny thing was i was looking for something at that same exact store and had a weird encounter that day !

Walmart and Sams both occasionally undersell Lee's but it is rare. Mostly a buck or two higher. You can also on occasion find Supermarket specials cheaper than Lees. I on rare occasion buy exotic scotch and champagne. Lee's is far and away the best source...often by as much as 20%.
On Drambuie for instance Lee's is generally 20% cheaper than anywhere else.
