Many hours of cooperation and hard work has culminated in the opening of the Red River Liquor Company’s new off-sale store near Akeley.

The new business is part of the Red River Event Center located on Highway 34 north of Akeley, and is owned by Jeff and Maggie Stacy and Brian and Sara Halik.

Hours of operation are Monday-Thursday from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m., Friday and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.

The character and charm is evident throughout the store in displays of a wide variety of domestic and craft beers, including a large walk-in beer cooler full of 12-packs, cases and kegs. There is also a wide range of liquor products and mixes with plenty of complimentary products for entertaining or hosting social engagements and parties.

One of the most impressive features is the wall of wines on custom-built hardwood shelving. The store also has a smoke shop and plenty of ice for sale.

Some of the promotions include Military Discount Day Tuesday, where veterans receive 10 percent off their purchase. Tuesday is also Senior Citizens Day with the same 10 percent discount.

There are also some unique services for the convenience of its customers. Even though there is a spacious parking lot suited for all vehicles, the store is offering product delivery within a 30-mile radius to docked boats, fish houses, resorts, cabins, campgrounds, homes, etc. Just call (218) 652-5222 with questions or to place an order.

Red River Event Center

The liquor store is part of the Red River Event Center, which is a throwback to the Akeley Red River Lumber Company of a century ago. The facility is newly renovated with a beautiful private bar to meet the needs of a wedding, corporate event or fundraisers.

Red River Event Center offers amazing wedding packages that are affordable for everyone while still providing the five-star experience for that special day. When making wedding plans, one of the most important choices will be choosing the wedding venue, one that sets the tone and suits the happy couple perfectly.
