At this point sales consist of 97% retail and 3% wholesale. Th retail sales are further broken down into 85% Beer Sales, 10% Ice Sales and 5% Soda. They have one of the widest selections of beers on Long Island. They also have LOTTO. Gross LOTTO sales were $100K in 2012. There is a great opportunity to build the wholesale portion of the business. It is ready to go. The sale includes ALL INVENTORY (approx. $70K - $100K) a Chevy 2003, 2500 Cargo Van with 90K miles, a Yale Forklift, 8 Door Cooler with heated doors, 8 Tap Portable Growler/Keg station, 2 Water Cooled Compressors, a POS System (Computer, Laptop, Scanner, Thermal Receipt Printer, laser printer, cash drawer, keypad) and much more... The store has a Class C Beer Distribution License. If you check with the NYS Liquor Authority you will find that no new Class C licenses will be issued in NY. The license alone is worth $35K. 2012 Gross sales were approx. $1,100,000.00 with a Net of Approx. $127,508.00.
