Where do Fredericksburg-area residents buy their liquor?
The Virginia Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control’s annual report, which was released a couple of weeks ago, shows where Fredericksburg-area residents bought their liquor in the 12 months ending June 30, 2011. The data seemingly would be valuable to businesses trying to decide where to lease space, and to the commercial real estate agents helping them make that decision, as it shows where customer traffic (at least for booze) is the heaviest. That’s rare data, since most private businesses aren’t going to release sales information by location. Here is how local (Fredericksburg and Caroline, King George, Spotsylvania and Stafford counties) ABC stores ranked in fiscal year 2011 by gross sales.
