The liquor store industry supplies hard alcohol, beer, wine, spirits, mixers, and soft drinks. Liquor stores often offer customers lottery tickets, citrus fruits, assorted snacks and drinking accessories like glasses and drink shakers. Although they compete with grocery stores and convenience stores, liquor stores often have the advantage a more unique selection of wines and spirits than competitors. Owning or managing a successful liquor store requires dedication to continuing education about market trends and customer expectations. Stores are typically owned and run by managers and staff with wine and spirits industry knowledge. Business owners must be aware of the legislation impacting their industry. Many liquor stores operate under national brands but family owned and operated single location and multi-location liquor stores continue to thrive in communities all over the world.
Operating a liquor store requires a central location within a community. Some liquor stores offer online purchasing and delivery as an additional offering. Other liquor stores operate exclusively online. These exclusively web-based liquor stores must be aware of laws that may not allow shipping of liquor products to certain states or countries. Web based ordering is common as an offering for local pickup at an in-town location. In town liquor stores often offer tasting events for the customers on a periodic basis. Liquor stores are typically staffed with managers, stock laborers, sales specialists and cashiers. These enterprises often run using on premise software and software-as-a-service (SaaS) technology. Such applications offer inventory records, employee management, point of sale, online ordering, billing, invoicing and liquor store payments.
