Notes -> Liquor stores having annual gross revenues of over $800,000 (like this one) are very much in demand and sell quickly. Well-capitalized stores (like this one) can purchase inventory at top tier « drops » and obtain the best bulk deals from distributors. High grossing stores in proven locations (like this one) are very hard to replicate. Good liquor businesses are in high demand, with far more buyers than sellers.
