Helper to Get a Liquor Store

Helper will have a liquor store again. The question now is where it will be.

On Tuesday, the state's Alcoholic Beverage Control Commission approved the request of the city's mayor and council to replace the package store that has been closed since February.

However, in the Help Wanted section of today's classified ads, there is an item placed by the DABC that indicates the store does not necessarily have to reopen in its previous Main Street location.

The DABC is accepting applications for a contract agent to run a package liquor agency in Helper. It states that this could be either a Type 3 outlet, like the previous one, or a Type 2, like Miners Trading Post in East Carbon/Sunnyside. Sun Advocate
