The province has sold off a few of the properties which used to hold Sask liquor stores.

The Saskatchewan Liquor and Gaming Authority accepted offers for the properties located in the communities of Esterhazy, La Ronge, Buffalo Narrows, Creighton, Carlyle, Humboldt, and Moosomin. 

The total purchase price for all of the properties is $2,085,000.

"I am pleased with the level of interest we have seen in these buildings," Saskatchewan Liquor and Gaming Authority Minister Lori Carr said. "Selling the properties is another step in the process to wind down SLGA Retail Inc. and the proceeds from the sales will also support important public services across the province."

SLGA owned 19 of the 34 properties that it operated its liquor stores from.

That leaves seven properties left to be sold, between the seven sold today and the five that are planned to be repurposed for other government organizations.

The province says they plan to sell the rest in the coming weeks.
