Bob you brought up that the mom and pops need to do a better job than Krogers. That os a big box chain not locally owned store. There are a lot of locally owned wine and spirit stores that offer great customer service. Some don't. Most do a better job than Krogers or any other big box store.
Bobsguns how in the world do you think you get great service from Walmart or Home Depot or Krogers. When is the last time you had people offering service there. I don't know what wine and spirit stores you shop in Nashville but in all businesses some don't do a very good job but some do a great job. I would contend the ones that are not doing a great job are being weeded out. Some survive flat out because they have a location.
Bob couldnt agree with you more except you and i both know there were plenty of locally owned grocery,hardware and pharmacy stores that knew your name and offered customer service but they squueze the little man out. I really don't see Krogers or Lowes or wallmart being the ultimate in customer service. I commend you and anyone else that bypasses the big box stpres to support the little man. The same thing will end up happening to the locally owned wine and spirit stores they will be squeezed out with no better service,pricing or selection. The only thing we will have is less Tennesseans owning their own businesses.
Not with twsra. Just trying to help save our locally owned businesses. Sorry for the mistake and read wrong. I am sure you have never done that. It is a shame people can' t have conversations anymore with out putting people down. I am trying to buy local as much as possible which is exactly what the wine and spirit stores are. If you dont think that the wallmarts of the world dont hurt your locally owned stores show me the new small business's that can hang with them. It just seems like most of the country wants to keep more jobs in the USA I am wanting the same for our state. Last but not least sad when you have to call people a troll if they are trying to protect their business. Again I AM Not with TWSRA.
Bob maybe if you would get more organized you wouldn't have to make so many trips to the grocery store. As far as competition tell me who has mre cometition 525 liquor and wine stores or the number of grocery store chains in our cities what about the number of hardware stores. As far as Kentucky goes you are probably getting ready to see liquor in all food stores. By the way the intent of the law in Tennessee was for the owners of wine and spirits stores to have only 1 license and not to sale anything but wine and spirits so we could keep the businesses local and keep the chains from running the locals out of business. I guess your convenience means more to you than keeping local ownership.
To bobsguns I am in No way wanting a state income tax. I am saying better be careful wanting what other states have.
First wine and spirits is a lot different than gas stations. Second yes corporations do give back it usually is more in there communities that they are based in. All of our wine and spirit stores are based in Tennessee. There profits and donations are done here. If that is at chuches or non profit organizations. I am just saying I don't think we have to go along with what all the other states are doing. I personally like to have as many businesses owned by Tennesseean's as we can get. We have 500 plus owners in these stores now. I am not sure how consumers are being hurt by not buying their wine in a food store. Believe me these food stores and mega corporations are wanting this because of profits not because they have a new found feelings for customers.
