Park Rapids liquor store a cash cow
Park Rapids relies on its municipal liquor store to help purchase items and keep taxes lower for residents.
Since 1996, when Rapids Spirits opened on Highway 34, transfers of $3,645,567 have been made for city purchases. The airport has received $1,077,282 of that money.
"The operation supports itself, from the equipment to the building," said Rapids Spirits manager Scott Olson.
