Nevis officials hope summer events bolster liquor profits
Nevis summertime festivities - the pig races, this weekend's Muskie Days and the upcoming Uffda Days, are proving, and anticipated, to boost liquor store revenues.
The liquor store reported a net income of $4,051 in June, $3,797 in May. But profits remain in negative territory, by approximately, $4,000.
"This is a pivotal year," mayor Dave McCurnin said of the liquor store. "We need to expand the customer base."
