OLYMPIA - All state liquor stores will be open on Independence Day, July 4, from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. State stores will be open during regular hours on Friday, July 3.
Contract liquor stores may also be open on Independence Day. Please contact contract stores directly for their holiday operating schedules.

The 2009-11 Biennial Budget directs the WSLCB to open most state stores on seven holidays, including New Years Day, Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Presidents Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day and Veterans Day. The WSLCB will post a list of open state stores prior to each holiday on its Web site at lcb.wa.gov.
The holiday store openings are part of a series of Budget-directed projects that will generate an additional $16.1 million in revenue for state and local services during the biennium.
