Email News Alerts

It was a vintage year for Alexandria's two city-owned liquor stores.

Combined, Downtown Liquor and Plaza Liquor turned a net profit of just under $500,000, according to LarsonAllen's 2009 liquor store audit approved by the Alexandria City Council Monday night.


That's about $100,000 more than the stores made in 2008.

Out of the profits, $400,000 was transferred into the city's general fund - $25,000 more than the city had budgeted to receive.
