Push to change how alcohol is sold in Montgomery County

"My managers at my two county stores just pull their hair out, just trying to deal with the county," said Brenner.

Store owners in Montgomery County can only get beer deliveries on Tuesdays and Fridays. Wine is delivered on Thursdays. Orders must be placed two days before the delivery is needed.

The result is higher prices for consumers. Store owners say the markup in Montgomery County is about 20 percent.

Montgomery County Councilmember Hans Riemer says the current policy is the kind of government control you would only see in the old Soviet Union.

"Let the businesses go to directly to private distributors. That will solve the problem for most of the products that are really so troubling," said Riemer.

Riemer's plan is to start reducing the number of items the country controls from 30,000 to about 5,000.
