PA Alcohol sales continue to grow at non-conventional stores

Local News

    You often see banners, like the one at a the Get Go on Buffalo Road that say “beer is here!”   They’re displayed at countless gas station and convenient store locations across the state.  But not too long ago the main choices for beer or wine to-go were state stores and beer distributors.  And despite a small slip in sales, keeping up with trends can help maintain customers, according to the manager at one local distributor.  Brandon Zimmerman, a manager at Hilltop Beer says,
    “It affects us a little bit because, you know, obviously sale are not coming here.  But then it kind of helps us because you go to those places, you get to try things and you like it then you can buy the bigger quantities from us.”
    Convenience can be difficult to compete with, says Zimmerman, but he believes that customer’s loyalty can keep them in the black.
