Hard liquor question

I am trying to figure out what the deal with hard liquor sales is here. Last weekend we were looking to get a couple of new bottles of tequila. The only stores we could find locally were ABC stores. I think we ended up hitting 5 of them throughout the course of the weekend. Somewhat predictably for a chain they all had very similar offerings. We did land on one to try but for the future this really doesnt look great for us, we like to have exposure to a variety. Are hard liquor stores very tightly state controlled here, is that why we were only finding the one chain and no independent stores?

Any idea if any of the Leland/ Wilmington ABC stores would be or can special order a specific bottle? Everyone was pretty busy this weekend save for one store and the staff there was pretty unfriendly. Enough so that we passed on buying at that particular store.

We would also be open to ordering online. We would do that in NY for favorite varieties. Anyone know off hand if you can get liquor shipped to an NC address?

All liquor sales in NC are controlled by ABC (Alcoholic Beverage Control Commission) and the stores are state-owned. I'm sorry, but I don't know if special orders are possible.

I think you would do best to just ask. The only thing is that they may have to order a whole case and unless it's something you want that much of, they may not want to do it. Asking sure won't hurt.

Thank you both! I didn't know that's what ABC meant. We are close enough to SC where we can check there too. Something fun about browsing

Just an FYI, SC liquor stores are also state-owned.

ETA: This information is outdated and incorrect. Better get there before 7:00, though! And don't get caught bringing more than four liters into NC because that's against NC law, although I doubt you're looking to buy that quantity.

SC now has independent sellers as well as the Red Dot stores. It may be dependent on the county thou.

I don't believe that this is a true statement. I have lived in SC most of my life. I do know that all liquor stores have to close by 7 PM and no liquor stores are opened on Sunday. Other than that, they are not state owned.

You are absolutely right, and I apologize for the incorrect information.

Thank you for the SC information too! Next time we pop over to Myrtle Beach we will definitely be on the lookout for different stores. Hoping since it is a vacation type town we will find a decent selection.
