Sunday liquor sales successful in first month

Glencoe Wine & Spirits has been open for five Sundays now and sales seem to be going well.
According to Glencoe Wine & Spirits July sales analysis, the average hourly sales during the week (with 13 hours of operation) is $507.70; on Sundays, the average hourly sales (with five hours of operation) is $400.25.
Assistant City Administrator Dan Ehrke is impressed with how close the average hourly sales are between Sundays and weekdays. “I think what that shows me is that this is what the customers want,” said Ehrke. “It’s only a month in, so it’s a little bit hard to tell, but it was interesting to just look at the numbers. Realistically, it’s probably going to be a year to two-year process to see trends for our customers and really evaluate what our customers are looking for. But, if you just look at the first month, I think we’re off to a good start.”
Ehrke, along with City Administrator Mark Larson and current assistant store manager Sue Deckert, have been brainstorming ways to grow the business, engage with customers and maximize their Sunday hours.
