City hears bad, good news about liquor sales
At first glance, the numbers look bleak:
Sales at Alexandria's two city-owned liquor stores fell from just over $5 million in 2010 to $4.6 million last year - a 9 percent drop.
But other factors brighten the outlook:
The city spent 10 percent less on beer, liquor and wine inventory than it did the previous year - $3.61 million compared to $4 million.
It also cut operating expenses from $750,431 to $745,137.
