I'm pretty sure there won't be a Trader Joe's in Oklahoma because of the liquor laws. Colorado's liquor laws seem to be similar to Oklahoma's. Here's something from the Colorado Springs forum:

"I believe it has to do with Colorado's Liquor laws. Apparently there are regulations on how a general merchandise store can sell liquor -- they are limited to certain alcohol %, etc. This is why you will generally find only beer at the grocery store (and I believe that is specially formatted to fit the laws). Trader Joe's depends on alcohol sales for its business model.

"Costco, for its part, circumvents the law by opening a seperate enterprise "Costco Liquors" next to its reguar stores. I guess Trader Joe's figures that kind of thing is not worth the trouble."

Peggy I think the show you are talking about is The Dukes of Hazard.

I don't doubt there are better (and cheaper) coffee houses in Stillwater. The only reason I ask is because I work at Starbucks now and, like Peggy said, I could go to Stillwater and already have a job.

I know I look good in orange because my high school colors are orange and black. The exact same colors as OSU! Maybe it's a sign!

Everyone has been such a great help. The only thing that I can think of that no one has talked about yet is the weather. What is the weather like in Oklahoma?

I guess the alcohol laws are a lot more relaxed in Oklahoma then Maryland. You can't find any type of beer at local grocery stores let alone liquor. We have a Trader Joe's that just opened up around here. I haven't been there yet. Maybe I'll check it out.

The weather is more extreme here. The summers are hot. We have snow or ice usually two or three times during the winter. We have some severe thunderstorms here. It is a lot more windy here.

Sounds like Maryland! 60's on Monday and snow today! I guess the weather won't long to get use to!

Yeah, but oddly enough Stillwater is dry on Sundays. So no drinks allowed to be served in restaurants beyond 3.2% beer. And all bars are closed. I don't know why the situation goes on unchallenged. If Tulsa and Oklahoma City can be dry on Sunday, why can't Stillwater?

Im confused StillwaterTownie. Are you saying that Stillwater is "dry" on Sunday or Oklahoma City and Tulsa are "dry" on Sundays?

It's not that big of an issue for me since I am currently 17 years old but it doesn't hurt to know as much as possible about some place before you commit to living there for four years.

He meant "wet" for OKC and Tulsa. Dry/Wet is a county option thing, so each county sets it's own laws. Pawnee County did not allow anything but 3.2 beer in restaurants ANYTIME until last year.
