Swanson’s has announced that it’s joining the race for Bethel’s third and final liquor store license. As of Friday, the state says that they have not received an application from the business to turn the old furniture store into a liquor shop. If they do, Swanson’s will join Kusko Liquor, Tundra Liquor Cache, and Alaska Commercial Company in the competition.
Cliff Linderoth is a manager at Swanson’s. He’s also a member of the Bethel Planning Commission and he thinks that Swanson’s has a good shot at getting the final license.
