Sales for Year Hit New High Profit of Purchases Is $25 Per Customer Des Moines, (&) —The Iowa state liquor system will show a record profit of nearly $8,500,000 in the year which ends June 30, the state liquor commission reported. Total sales also will reach a new cash high, nearly $38,000,000 dollars. This means the average customer spent more than $110 in the stores duririg the year. The profit on the purchases of that average customer exceeds $25. Last year the stores had total sales of $34,191,000 and a profit of $7,042,000. The average customer then spent about $71 in the stores and he contributed less than $15 profit. All this doesn't mean lowans are drinking a lot more than they did a year ago. The last legislature in effect pushed liquor prices upward by passing a law providing that cities and towns shall get an amount equal to 5 per cent of the gross sales of the state stores each year. Another 5 per cent 'was earmarked for local taxing districts to help make up for tax money lost by exemptions given to veterans on their real estate. To meet these added requirements and still pay $3,500,000 a year into the state treasury, the liquor commission had to raise liqilbr prices about 8 per cent in the state stores. A major share of the rise in sales, therefore, comes from price increases rather than a boost in the amount of liquor sold. Take Over Store Britt—Mr. and Mrs. K. O. Langbell and son of Alexandria, Minn., have moved to Britt and will operate the Coast to Coast store which' has been under the management of Mr. and Mrs. John Olson for the past year.
