The Pennsylvania Liquor & Control Board recently released its annual report and it reveals that the Conshohocken store at Ridge and Butler Pikes ranks 15th in total dollar sales. The ranking is somewhat deceiving, because it includes stores that are primarily focused on serving the restaurant industry. If you remove those four stores, Conshohocken ranks 11th.
For the retail year ending on June 15, 2015, the Conshohocken store saw 305,793 transactions, an average transaction price of $39.69 and total revenue of $12,138,219.06. Please note the per transaction amount is somewhat deceiving. While the store isn’t one of those we mentioned that specifically services the restaurant industry, most of the area restaurants, country clubs and hotels do buy from this store, which drives up the per transaction amount.
The Conshohocken store jumped up two stops compared to the previous year when it ranked 17th and had 290,010 transactions, an average transaction price of $38.95 and total revenue of $11,296,116.94.
The report doesn’t include data on what brands and types of liquor and wine sell best at specific stores, but it does include statewide data. The report states:
The top 100 items by units are shown in Table 12. Fireball Cinnamon Whisky 750 mL, Jack Daniel’s Old Number 7 Tennessee Whiskey 750 mL and Nikolai Vodka 375 mL were the top three items in unit sales in RY 2014–15. KendallJackson Vintner’s Reserve Chardonnay 750 mL, Cavit Pinot Grigio 1.5 L and Woodbridge Chardonnay 1.5 L were the top wines by unit sales.
In terms of growth from the previous year, Fireball Cinnamon Whisky 1.75 L has increased unit sales by 88.18%. Tito’s Vodka in the 1.75 L (+57.80%) and 750 mL (+63.60%) both increased unit sales. The high growth spirits items all had over 100% increase in licensee unit sales as well as strong growth in retail. Nobilo Sauvignon Blanc 750 mL (+21.97%) and Apothic Red 750 mL (+18.55%) are the top two wines with the highest increases.
People love the Fireball. Would be curious to know if Fireball’s popularity drove the 15,000 additional transactions over the previous year at the Conshohocken store.
