    All 79 New Hampshire Liquor and Wine Outlets were shut down by the state Liquor Commission Tuesday.

    Virtually everything has shut down in New Hampshire due to the storm — even the state-run liquor stores.

    The state Liquor Commission shut down all 79 New Hampshire Liquor & Wine Outlets as of 3 p.m. Tuesday. They will reopen Wednesday morning.

    Chairman Joseph Mollica said the safety and well-being of store workers and consumers "is of paramount importance" and he encouraged everyone to travel safely.

    In January 2015, Democratic Gov. Maggie Hassan declared a state of emergency during a storm and shut down a number of agencies, including the liquor stores.
