In summer 2014, Saskatchewan Liquor and Gaming Authority (SLGA) privatized four small town liquor stores in Ituna, Kerrobert, Langenburg and Ponteix. These full-line public liquor stores were replaced by private franchises, operating out of existing businesses.

To learn what effects these privatizations had on local residents and economies, SGEU commissioned a researcher to visit each town and interview residents and business owners. Below is a summary of the project’s findings. The full report can be read by clicking the link above.
