City liquor stores participate in food drive

Alexandria's two municipal-owned liquor stores are participating in a food drive to help the Douglas County Food Shelf during the month of October.

The Minnesota Municipal Beverage Association is sponsoring the effort statewide.

Customers can make cash donations at the liquor stores. Every dollar that is donated will provide one pound of food at the food shelf.

Customers are also encouraged to bring their non-perishable food items to the two liquor stores - Downtown Liquor and Plaza Discount Liquor.

Everyone who contributes will receive 10 percent off any three bottles of wine and 5 percent off a case of Coors, which is also a partner in the food shelf drive.
