KETK Lakeport, Tx — The town of Lakeport, just south of Longview, can now have beer and wine sold within the city limits.
The November vote result has already been a huge boost for businesses such as Skinner's Corner Store.
Co-owner Stephen Skinner tells KETK, he was able to start selling alcohol just before Christmas, taking advantage of the holiday push for these particular items.
