Caryville can thank the town’s two liquor stores for helping to line the coffers, but store owners say sales could have been even better had the interstate not been closed due to last spring’s landslide.
“We didn’t experience the sale that we thought we would have just because the interstate was shut down for so long up on the mountain,” said John Davenport, owner of the Liquor Barn off exit 134.
Between March and September, Caryville received $105,003 of tax money from the sale of liquor, an average of $15,000 per month.
