LITTLE ROCK-March 8 marked the final day to submit an application for a retail liquor store in Van Buren County to Arkansas Beverage Control. ABC records show 16 applicants throughout the county.

These applications are currently being reviewed by ABC, estimated to take from 150 to 180 days, for proper completion before the next phase of the approval process.

In that phase approved applicants will enter a two-step drawing. The first draw is for a number for their order to draw for the second drawing. The second drawing is the order which each applicant will appear before the ABC board and make their case for approval of their application.

The number of approved applications for a retail liquor store in a county is based upon that county’s population. In the case of Van Buren County, two retail liquor store applications will be approved.

Beer and wine, and beer-only sale permits are not limited and granted under a separate process.

Each retail liquor store application required a $2,000 fee to ABC at the time of application.
