Tami Ross shopped for wine at the Lakeville Municipal Liquor Store in 2013. With $15.28 million in sales, Lakeville topped the list of the 190 Minnesota cities that run their own liquor stores.

Municipal liquor stores in Minnesota brought in $360.2 million in 2018 as they reported record sales for the 23rd straight year, according to a state report released Wednesday.

Statewide sales were up $11.3 million from 2017, a 3.2% increase, despite a drop in the number of municipal liquor stores. Altogether, municipal liquor operations brought in a combined net profit of $29 million last year, according to the state auditor's report.
