January 29, 2015

The Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board (PLCB) enjoyed solid holiday sales to close out its fiscal first half, which ended December 31. According to unaudited figures released this week, the PLCB saw wine and spirits sales total $993.1 million in the six months through December, representing growth of 4.6%. Income increased 3.9% over the year-earlier period to $79.1 million.

December sales were up almost 7% year-on-year, with a one-day record of $19.1 million in sales achieved on December 31. The previous single-day record of $18.5 million was recorded on December 23, 2011. The PLCB, which operates 605 wine and spirits stores across the state, said increased staff training and a rebranding of its stores has helped boost results.
