PLCB

The Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board today announced its unaudited operating results for the first half of fiscal year 2013-14.

 

PLCB wine and spirits sales totaled $949.6 million for the six-month period ending Dec. 31, 2013, a 3.4-percent increase over the same period in fiscal year 2012-13.

 

Both wine and spirits sales showed growth when compared to the same period in 2012-13. Wine sales increased by 3.4 percent, while spirits sales increased by 3.3 percent at Fine Wine & Good Spirits stores.

As a result of positive sales growth, the agency reported an interim net profit of $76.1 million, a 1.4-percent increase over last year, and remitted more than $236.5 million in sales and liquor tax to the commonwealth, an increase of $7.4 million over the first six months of 2012-13.
The PLCB regulates the distribution of beverage alcohol and also operates more than 600 Fine Wine & Good Spirits stores statewide. Taxes and store profits are returned to Pennsylvania’s General Fund. For more information about the Liquor Control Board, visit www.lcb.state.pa.us.

    Didn't get anything from us. We went to Baltimore yesterday and saved 25% and, on top of that, filled up in Timonium at $3.29/gal. Now that our gas tax went up, there is more reason to buy in MD.

      Nothing wrong with that. That's competition. Marylanders did the same when gasoline was cheaper here. If the state stores are anything like the Turnpike, they have some fat cats that need to be forced to diet.
