Custer Finds More Revenue Without Liquor Store

City of Custer reaps profit in shedding liquor store ownership.

After closing the city-owned liquor store mid-way through 2010, the city of Custer has taken in more revenue from the 10 percent surcharge it levies on private liquor sales, the Custer Chronicle reports.

In 2011, the city's alcohol revenue was $170,778, up $41,906 over its alcohol revenue in 2009, the last full year it owned the liquore store.
