BevMo sucks, why would anyplace allow a big box store that will replace decent local businesses. Local businesses keep the money in the city.

If I were an employee of Beltramo's, I'd claim overtime to attend the meeting since the boss mandated it.

Why? Because we, the consumer, ultimately benefit from the larger volume stores. They help to keep the product prices low, keep the service levels of the local businesses high, and help the local economy with jobs and sales tax revenue. The Capitola BevMo is fine, offers a decent variety and hasn't caused an "alcohol outlet supply armageddon"....As a shopper, it's really nice to have the different resources to shop at, especially if I'm looking for a particular spirit. It really pays to shop around in Santa Cruz. For example, I've often noticed the prices at Shoppers will be several dollars less than BevMo on certain specialty liquors. Safeway seems to be the most expensive. And, I still shop at the local Liquor stores too...it just depends on what I'm looking for and the price.....

As far as local businesses (and business owners) "keeping the money in the city"....without full financial records and disclosure from all local business owners, there is no way to tell "where" their money goes....in fact, many of them could be sending most of their profits out of the county or country..we'll never know without full financial disclosures (Trust me..ya' don't wanna go there people). Salute'
