Springdale booze monopoly broken

Jason Tolbert, who truly is the hardest working blogger in Arkansas, Twitters that the state ABC has voted 5-0 to approve the permit for a Macadoodles liquor store in Springdale. It's been controversial, not the least because of Springdale's history as a liquor monopoly town (a single owner controls multiple stores, contrary to practice elsewhere).

The company will run an adjacent gas station as well. It has a big store/gas station on the Missouri line near Bella Vista. Sen. Sue. Madison objected to the permit because of all the years of Arkies running over the line to get booze that wasn't taxed in state.
