Keeping Ohio in the forefront of the spirits industry is imperative to continued growth and success. The Division of Liquor Control (DOLC) continues to evaluate our operations to identify new and innovative ways to do business which will refine our operations, increase our sales and enhance the customer experience all while promoting responsible consumption.
To keep up with demand, DOLC is seeking applicants to establish and operate new Contract Liquor Agencies in the state of Ohio. Applications are now being accepted for 20 locations. The application and locations can be found online at http://www.com.ohio.gov/liqr/Agency.aspx.
Expanding the Agency footprint not only provides exceptional customer service, it also adds to the economic success of the liquor enterprise. The goal is to roll out 15 – 20 stores within the next 18 months.
These new stores will take the shopping experience to the next level. New applicants must distinguish themselves in terms of look and feel, with an emphasis on sophistication and knowledge. It’s important that the staff of these new stores really understand the products they’re selling. DOLC wants customers to have an exceptional experience while at one of our locations, and these steps will help do just that.
The Division of Liquor Control will again hold a Bottle Lottery to give as many Ohioans as possible a chance to purchase a bottle from the Pappy Van Winkle family collection that only becomes available in small amounts.
The lottery will run from Nov. 6 – 17. Customers can pick up a lottery ticket at any Contract Liquor Agency. They can then log ontowww.com.ohio.gov/liqr/BottleLottery and follow the instructions to complete their entry.
