Wine Industry News: Scotland Exhales, Top Retailers Honored

September 22nd, 2014

Two interesting pieces from Shanken News Daily this past week: Top Retailers were honored by Market Watch and the Scotch industry exhaled a bit as Scottish voters came down against independence. [level-members]

Among the retailers honored by Market Watch magazine were Gary’s Wine & Marketplace in New Jersey name the following as the keys to his firm’s success:

Impeccable service

Strong merchandising

Broad selection

Competitive pricing

(We’re willing to bet it was those first two that really did the trick …)

The scotch industry avoided a bit of uncertainty as voters in Scotland opted to remain a part of Great Britain. Given the unknowns surrounding everything from currency to governmental regulation that the change would have created, this is a good thing for the industry. [/level-members]
