Be A Responsible Seller
Be A Responsible Seller (BARS) is an educational program offered to licensed ABC and NC Education Lottery permit holders and their employees free of charge. These programs educate employees on the criminal laws and administrative regulations governing responsible business operation.

The BARS training began in the early 1980s and educates employees on topics such as how to spot underage and intoxicated people, how to properly check IDs, and how to tactfully refuse sales and service to intoxicated individuals. ALE conducts more than 500 BARS programs annually.

If you are interested in scheduling a BARS program for your retail business, please contact the ALE District Office that services your county.
