So, WKRN had a story last night about the MTSU survey poll, which found 69% of Tennesseans support the sale of wine in food stores. BTW, that’s up from 62% two years ago. In case you were wondering.
WKRN’s Roxanna Hall interviewed the general manager at Village Wines in Nashville’s Hillsboro Village. Here’s his rational, reasonable answer about the potential impact of this legislation on liquor stores.
HALL — Those who run wine stores, like here at Village Wines, are confident they’ll still be able to keep up business, even if this bill passes.
VILLAGE WINES GM — There’s still a place for wine stores to help customers find special wines and have more knowledge about what we’re selling and find good deals on great wines…We’re going to lose out on a little bit of sales, but we’ll also be able to focus more on what we really want to be doing.
Can we get an amen?
