STATE HISTORY

In 1937 the State of North Carolina created a uniform system of controlling and regulating the sale of distilled spirits. A State Board of Control, the North Carolina Alcohol Beverage Control Commission, was established to oversee the issuance of alcohol permits, tax guidelines, product selection and uniform prices throughout the state.

It was further imposed that no ABC Store shall be owned or operated by the state, and that no state funds are to be used to support the local ABC boards. Each city or county would be allowed to vote on establishing their own store.
