(Sturgis, SD) According to the Rapid City Journal
the Surgis City Council has approved lifting a town ordinance that
prohibits grocery stores from selling liquor, just for the first two weeks
of August, during the annual Sturgis Bike Rally.
The specifics are that a store must have the backing of a non-profit (which
are being made available through Sturgis Rally Charities,) pay $100 a day
for a temporary license, and pay 10% of their liquor sales to the charity
that they're supporting and the city of Sturgis.
This temporary liquor licensing for the bike rally is an experiment to see
if they can't alleviate traffic to Sturgis's one liquor store.
