New State Liquor and Wine Outlet store opens in Londonderry
LONDONDERRY - New Hampshire's 78th liquor and wine outlet opened its doors Monday in Londonderry.
The new store features a 9,000 sq. ft. liquor outlet along with a travel center that features a 24-hour Red Arrow Diner, a 19 pump gas station and a convenience store.
It's located off I-93 at exit-5. It's a busy location. About 100,000 cars pass by the stretch of freeway every day. The state projects the new store will rank among its top 20 stores for sales revenue.
New Hampshire Liquor Commission Chair Joseph Mollica said, "We're looking for this store to do somewhere between $6-million to $7-million the first year and then progressively somewhere between 4% to 6% growth after that."
Last year the state's liquor and wine outlets took in about $650-million dollars in gross sales and contributed about $154-million in net revenue to the state's general fund.
