There is an ad running in two of KY's newspapers, written (supposedly) by Bill Samuels.
You donít need 20/20 vision right now to see that times are tough. For all of us. Whether youíre an executive of a blue-chip corporation or a convenience store bagger, everyone is doing whatever they can to cut back and stay afloat.
As we all know, the government has had its hands full with the unenviable job of digging us out of this serious economic recession. And, as we all know, itís not going to be a quick fix. But Iíve never been one who enjoys watching the action from the sideline. So, I thought Iíd try to lend a hand.
Many of you may have noticed a tax hike that went into effect not too long ago. It was an increase in Kentuckyís alcoholic beverage tax. Some may say that it wasnít such a big deal. But Iíd hate to see a tax hike keep people from enjoying their favorite bourbon.
And now, to my point.
For the first time ever, weíre lowering the price of Makerís Markģ for our retailers in the amount of six percent. Which coincidentally is also the exact amount of the tax hike. Weíve encouraged all of our retail partners to pass these savings on to you, our friends.
Which means the next time youíre out visiting your favorite liquor store, youíll have the chance to thank them for passing their savings along to you.
