The second grouping of SLGA liquor license auctions wrapped up Thursday.
Auction Group 2 included liquor licenses for both Moose Jaw and Assiniboia.
"saskliquor1" had the winning bid for Moose Jaw at $1,265,200, while Assiniboia's liquor license went to "CK123" for $550,200.
The liquor license in Estevan went surprisingly high for such a small city, bringing in $1,407,500 from "LiquorMerchants".
So far, that's the fourth-highest lot of the auction, surpassing licenses for larger cities such as Saskatoon and Moose Jaw.
Group two as a whole seemed to have plenty of high bids, with Regina bringing in $1,561,000 from "In High Spirits". Saskatoon passed the million-dollar mark, but was a bit smaller, at $1,300,600 from "saskliquor1".
Moosomin's license went for $630,000, bought by "CSK2023".
The highest bid in the auction so far was for Regina in Auction Group 1, which closed on Wednesday. The winning bid went to "Liquor10" for $1,425,000.
Auction Group 3 closes today. It includes licenses for Regina, Saskatoon, Swift Current, Meadow Lake, Nipawin, and Biggar.
The province announced last fall that it would close all SLGA liquor stores by March 31, 2023 and auction off the permits.
