    Many liquor prices in Maine are set to revamp in February in a move to help streamline the way the state prices liquor, according to the Portland Press Herald.

    The changes come from a decision by the state Bureau of Alcoholic Beverages and Lottery Operations.

    Maine sells 3,299 products, 666 of which will see price drops and 589 of which will have their prices increased.

    The price changes range anywhere from 50 cents to $5.

    The initial change is estimated to cost the state $1.7 million.
