SALT LAKE CITY — Utah’s alcohol control authority has broken another sales record.
The Utah Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control recorded $3.8 million in sales at state-run liquor stores on Dec. 22 alone. That breaks the previous record which was set the day before Thanksgiving at $3.6 million, according to a report by Fox13Now.com.
“The demand is higher than ever. It amazes even us,” said Terry Wood, a spokesman for the DABC.
State liquor stores closed at 6 p.m. on Christmas Eve.
With an increasingly diversifying and growing population, Utah continues to break sales records for alcohol.
Money from liquor sales goes to school lunches for needy children, public safety and the state’s general fund.
