BCGEU urges people to Shop Public! at B.C. government liquor stores

The British Columbia Government and Service Employees' Union is encouraging people to buy their wine, beer, and spirits at publicly owned liquor stores where they enjoy better selection and lower prices.

Vancouver (25 July 2014)—The British Columbia Government and Service Employees' Union (BCGEU/NUPGE) is reaching out to the public to say that when it comes to buying beer, wine and other beverages, where you shop does matter.

The women and men who work at B.C.'s government run public liquor stores are urging British Columbians to buy at public liquor stores for better selection and lower prices—as much as 35 per cent less than private stores.  

To help inform people about the issue, the BCGEU/NUPGE has produced a poster, series of radio ads and an online video.
