The Ohio Division of Liquor Control will set up a “Last Call” liquor warehouse of sorts in Columbus to host a final closeout sale over the next two weekends, and it’s throwing in some other enticements to make the drive:
• a chance to win free (but empty) bourbon barrels
• a chance to purchase some other rare and sought-after bourbons.
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.
Here’s the schedule for the raffle of the opportunity to purchase rare bourbons and to score free empty bourbon barrels. One entry per person, must be 21 or over to enter. Bottles are for personal use, not for resale, ODLC officials said. And they also remind us to drink responsibly.
