I'm so confused

I really enjoyed this story about a convenience store that is spending $3 million to move their store 100 feet from the Kansas side of KC to the Missouri side. Apparently the store is split by the state line but slightly more resides on the Kansas side which means only 3.2% beer along with higher cig and gas taxes. The store thinks that over the long haul it can make up the difference with higher sales while Kansas stands to lose over a million a year in tax revenue.

The idea of someone spending millions to move to Missouri of all places kind of boggles my mind but I will agree that Kansas has some absolutely ridiculous liquor laws. It would be great if Kansas changed all of those laws in a bid to keep this store.
