    Answered . Although many bars and liquor establishments will purchase liquor from liquor stores for sale in their establishment when they run low, it is not advisable. Minnesota Administrative Rule 7515.0520 requires that all retailers purchase their stock of alcoholic beverages only from duly licensed Minnesota manufacturers, brewers, and wholesalers. Retailers may purchase intoxicating liquors from other retailers only under the conditions stated in part 7515.0650 which relates to liquidation of the business.
