Wow. Just think of what kind of clientèle that that is going to attract, different from the type of person who frequents a dollar... you know what, never mind.

But will they have poker in the back?

We are getting an ABC license in some of the stores in Virginia so we will have a huge beer selection in a couple months. My store is in a college town, so I am not looking forward to getting more drunken idiots than usual.

LMFAO------today the liquor store had Wine Samples $1. Now if Dollar Store can open a Gas Station..

This here is a recipe for unpleasantness.

Beer and wine do not a liquor store make.
 
2012-04-04 04:23:31 PM  
Do I have to dress up to go there like I do at the Walmart?
 
2012-04-04 04:24:00 PM  
I buy my beer at high class places.

Walgreen's Big Flats Lager. Nummy.

Their wines aren't bad either.

Which college town? If it's near Radford, brace yourself. Quadfest is coming.

It should be noted that Dollar Generals aren't "Dollar Stores". Their goods are merely rounded to the next dollar. They sell plenty of items for $1, but they sell things for $8 or $20 or $5.
 
2012-04-04 04:26:46 PM  
This will be fertile ground for future Fark headlines.

Why can't they get into the gas business?

Haha why yes, it is Radford. The last three years the National Guard has been monitoring Quadfest weekend like a hawk. I'd never seen so many cops/military in my entire life. It's not gonna be pretty this April. Last year they had a chopper.

They already sell beer and wine in Dollar General stores in my town in FL, and it isn't the liquor business necessarily, because, they don't sell liquor there.

They are already selling it at the Dollar Generals in NC (at least on my end of the state). I didn't check out the selection, but it appeared to be about what the convenience stores offer.

Oh god that takes me back to college. Never and I mean never buy the biggest bottle of vodka you can find in a plastic bottle for the cheapest price. I don't even remember the brand, but it was like a three litter bottle of vodka for $6. I think I went blind the night I drank most of it and I was drunk for like three days.

I probably should have died of alcohol poisoning or from choking on my own vomit, but I had a really nice friend who held my head over a toilet for like three hours.

I had a plastic bottle of vodka experience in college. It was TAAKA vodka. Had like 9 screwdrivers in the space of an hour.

God I was dumb.

Not a bad idea. Then they could apply for a federal grant. Living in the mountains, off the land, producing their own energy -- my god that's the pinnacle of green living.

No sales before 11 a.m. ? No sales on Christmas ? WTF ? Down here in the Keys, the only down time on booze sales is 4 to 7 a.m., 365.

Are you trolling or do you really not know what Moonshiners are?

I haven't actually experienced Quadfest yet. My friends and I are debating going to the beach that weekend instead. How crazy does it get on darkside? My neighbors are bad enough on a normal weekend...I'm clearing out if it's much worse.

It's a joke. Along the lines of hillbillies producing moonshine to be used as fuel (and drink, of course) with a slight ribbing to government for giving grants to hair-brained green schemes...

Well the documentary claimed--that is how it all started.. CLAIMED I SAID--not that it is factual--I laughed at the 3 rednecks in the garage telling the story--but they claim this is why "Ethanol" was traded for oil in the first place. LOL

Unlike the 99 Cent Store, where everything is $0.99(99) cents (or less) and where you have been able to buy wine, beer, and sangria for awhile now.

/mmmm, $0.99 sangria...

Gotcha. I didn't see the documentary. But I have known some moonshiners. I had a client a while back give me a few shots at his house. I think he was feeling me out to see if we could work on trade, moonshine for services. If he would of aged it to smooth out, I may have made a deal.

I believe Aldi sells the delicious Winking Owl Wine. But I doubt it's any good because it's sold in a glass bottle.

Woo Quadfest is pretty crazy. Every house has a party going on, and last year a record breaking 182 people were charged with public intox in 3 days. Drunk half naked college kids stumbling around everywhere, but it's much worse on Lightside. Luckily I live on the far end of Darkside so it's not TOO noisy here.

Last year I went to a party with some friends and watched some fat slob of a girl have sex with the host in the back yard with a crowd of people watching. Not my thing, I only have a few drinks, but it can get pretty nuts. The cops stop caring about the noise levels for that one weekend. You should experience at least 1 Quadfest in your time at RU!

Also, I'm a Education Counseling Psych Masters student. About to finish my first year.

why mention the shade of ones skin? WTF does that have to do with anything?

Dollar General is bullshiat.

They round everything UP to the next Dollar, and they sell cheap Chinese crap you can get a lot cheaper if you just do some online shopping.
