Here’s the latest progress report on opening a Type-3 Package Agency in Ogden Valley! After much discussion and research, there is no funding currently available for a Type-3 Package Agency for Ogden Valley until sometime during the fourth-quarter of this year when the UDABC closes the American Fork, Type-3 agency, and opens its new state liquor store there.
Wolf Creek Resort…the current Type-2 Package Agency in the valley has notified the UDABC that they will not be renewing their agency contract when it expires June 30, 2009. For that reason and upon suggestion of Mr. Bill Lyman (Managing Member, Ogden Valley Liquor Group, L.L.C.) the UDABC will allow Mr. Lyman to apply for the Type-2 Agency contract and then, in fourth-quarter, when funding is available, the Ogden Valley Liquor Group, L.L.C. can apply for transition to a Type-3 Agency.
What do these differences in agency types mean to the Ogden Valley general public…absolutely nothing! The agency type simply designates a difference in agency compensation and operation. (Type-2: An agency operated in conjunction with another business, Type-3: A standalone packaged liquor sales agency) The Eden Liquor Agency plans to offer the same wide variety of hard-liquor brands and sizes along with high-point beer and over 110 wine selections regardless of its agency designation.
The Eden Liquor Agency has already received its Conditional Use Permit and business licensing from the county to commence operations. The target opening date is July 1, 2009…if all goes well! The Eden Liquor Agency also plans to offer a variety of unique, gourmet food items and other merchandise that compliment liquor, beer and wine indulgence! Such as, a variety of chips and snack foods, dips and sauces, gourmet cheeses, gourmet crackers, several types of stuffed olives, drink mixers and juices as well as fun, sexy and laughable T-shirts, tanktops and seasonal outerwear, barware (shaker cups, martini glasses, shot glasses, specialtywine glasses, strainers, bar-spoons, cork screws, beer openers, jiggers, gallon-bottle cradles), bar décor signs (both, lighted and not), and much more! Frankly…as much as they can fit in the store!
To be fair and unbiased, the UDABC will advertise for a Type-2 agent in the next issue of the Ogden Valley News. After June 10, the UDABC will review Ogden Valley Liquor Group, L.L.C’s application, along with any others they receive, and will interview applicants and award the agency contract. So, stay patient! Mr. Lyman…the Ogden Valley Liquor Group, L.L.C and The Eden Liquor Agency are working hard to jump through the hoops and get-open for the residents, tourists and liquor resale outlets of Ogden Valley!
