Why Keep it Local?

North Carolina has one of the best, most efficient liquor sales systems in the country. Local ABC Boards provide a sales environment that is safe and helps local cities and towns with revenues to invest back into local needs.

The Case

Stand With Us

North Carolina’s ABC system appropriately balances consumer access, control, and revenue. North Carolina has one of the lowest liquor consumption rates in the country. Privatizing liquor sales likely results in an excessive number of liquor outlets, making it more available for those who need it the least: minors and irresponsible drinkers. Our system works. Help us keep it local!
