Sales tumble at city liquor stores

Email News Alerts

Sales and profits dipped at Alexandria's two city-owned liquor stores last year.

But the stores still made enough money to transfer $400,000 into the city's general fund, which has the effect of lowering property taxes, according to City Administrator Jim Taddei.


The Alexandria City Council approved the audits for Downtown Liquors and Plaza Liquors at its meeting Monday night.
