In Tennessee there is current legislation that will allow for big box and grocery stores to sell wine to their customers. Along with several other points, the biggest win for the existing liquor stores is that there is a wait time before big boxes within a close physical proximity to the liquor store can begin to sell. That gives the little guy time to take advantage of the situation and reevaluate their business plan and bottle security.
One of the biggest comments that I have heard about continuing to buy wine from the smaller liquor store (instead of in a grocery store) is the attention they can get. Small boxes have an opportunity to win their customers over with their knowledge and their selection. They can focus on specific bottles that might not be carried by a big box.
All of that, of course, is contingent on having the bottle security in place to make sure when a customer comes in for a specific bottle, you have it in stock. If you are not using Alpha Security EASy Bottle or a comparable bottle lock, you may not have what the customer is looking for. If they are making separate trips to buy an item and then the item is unavailable, the customer is less likely to return. They will take their business to the big box with less employee knowledge, but better consistent available inventory.
