Didn't know booze is price controlled.

Costco loses state case on lowering beer, wine prices
Too early to decide whether company will appeal

By CRAIG HARRIS
P-I REPORTER

A federal appeals court Tuesday dealt Costco Wholesale Corp. a setback on whether the warehouse club operator could lower prices of beer and wine for its customers.

The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said the Washington State Liquor Control Board could prohibit discounts, ban central warehousing of beer and wine by retailers, require wholesale distributors to charge uniform prices to all retailers and require a 10 percent markup.
