• a chance to win free (but empty) bourbon barrels

The closeout events will be held Oct. 18-21 and Oct. 25-28 at a former Giant Eagle store at 777 Neil Ave. in Columbus. 

If this pilot program is successful, the agency will consider taking future closeout events to other parts of Ohio, a spokeswoman for the ODLC said.

The closeout items are products that have been discontinued or “de-listed” from Ohio liquor stores. Discounts range from zero to 40 percent.
