Positive economic impact

Last year, a Whole Foods representative testified before the New York legislature about the positive economic impact of allowing wine sales in food and drug stores. The testimony was quite interesting, especially the millions in new state and local revenues.

Tennessee ain’t New York. We get that and would not expect the same impact.

At the same time, allowing wine sales in retail food stores in Tennessee will create new licensing fees that don’t exist today, additional tax revenue, and even jobs (more on this in a future post).
