Re: Boone Co. has been dry for 65 years- wet now.
Wet/dry lines are disappearing all over. 20 years ago building a big liquor store on a wet/dry line was a way to get really rich. Do it today and you better be ready to declare bankruptcy when the line disappears.
The company I work for owned ten stores just outside of Lubbock TX. When Lubbock went wet, they are all now empty buildings. We have built two stores in Lubbock proper. The distributors also feel the pinch. Instead of delivering to Ten stores in a 1 mile radius, they have to now deliver to over 50 stores in a 20 mile radius. They are selling basically the same amount of liquor as before, but it takes more people, more trucks and more time. None of these little stores have the sales to buy the big quantity buys, so it costs more. We are hearing the people complain that prices are higher now that Lubbock is wet.
