Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board Reports Sales Increase Of Nearly Five Percent For First Six Months Of The Year

HARRISBURG, Pa., Feb. 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board today announced its unaudited operating results for the first half of fiscal year 2012-13.

PLCB wine and spirits sales totaled $918.2 million, a 4.9 percent increase for the six-month period ending Dec. 31, 2012. Both retail and licensee sales showed strong growth when compared to the same time period in 2011-12. Retail sales at PA Wine & Spirits Stores increased by 5.5 percent, while licensee sales increased by 3.5 percent.

As a result of strong sales growth, the agency reported an interim net profit of $75.1 million, a $16.7 million increase over last year, and remitted more than $233 million in sales and liquor tax for the commonwealth, an increase of $9.9 million over the first six months of 2011-12.

Established in 1933, the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board regulates the distribution of beverage alcohol and also operates more than 600 PA Wine & Spirits Stores statewide. Taxes and store profits are returned to Pennsylvania's General Fund, helping to pay the cost of essential services such as education, health care, infrastructure and public safety.
