    Why, perhaps, there are so many here from Michigan

    Hard times folks, but I hear prosperity is just around the corner.

    A good percentage of the rise in hard liquor sales in Michigan, is probably due to Tony and all the Michigan Bourbon Hounds. Joe

    Re: Why, perhaps, there are so many here from Michigan

    That article is correct about sales down in bars and resturants.
    I have noticed the decline for over a year now.
    Just last Monday I went to a resturant to make a sale and the place was closed.
    They said they were going to reopen in a couple of months with a lower price point menu.
    But the convience and grocery stores are still steady and sales are up in some.
    I am extremely lucky to be selling beer from the number 1 brewery.
    My sales are steady but my market share has grown by a very good margin the last year or so.

    Always interesting, Oscar, to hear from the insider's point of view.
