Is there really enough intellect in the area to add alcohol to the equation?
The last thing the area needs is more incoherent people.
There's not enough ambition in that town to run a lemonade stand.
How is putting more alcohol on the table going to bring prosperity.

Liquor by the drink passed in Wingate. The ABC store passed in Wingate. Yippie Hurrah! Do you know how many liquor by the drink permits they have issued so far? ONE, that's right ONE. Only one place has bought a license to sell liquor by the drink and the town isn't expecting any other applications any time soon.
Not only is that a disappointment but we now know that an ABC store is going to cost the Wingate taxpayers approximately 1 million to 1.5 million to startup and that's not building a new building. With a small taxbase like Wingate that's a nice chunk of the town budget. Not only that but the state of NC requires that annual profit from all of it's licensees must be $250,000 or more or they will be closed. The proposed ABC store in Wingate may never open!
Why is Lewisville, nc worried about Wingate, N C ? Go mind your own business.. Liquor is flowing baby

The liquor store in wingate is so so so GREAT ! And is creating jobs and revenue !
Unlike wasington , dc ? Hippocrites ... We creatin us some j o b s. down here... Babycakes..... Win win situation ...... Win ... Win .... Win ..... So go tend to Lewisville, Nc and leave Wingate alone !

It takes any business time to get started... With time it is win win . Better than a vacant building collecting dust babycakes, Mr. lewisville, N C

When the town grows as a result of being the terminus of the Toll Road there should be restaurants opening up that will want to serve liquor. The town is preparing for it's future.

Think Booze meant Troll, Y'ALL. But as to your statement about the intellect of Wingate, doesn't Wingate have a collage that takes up the majority of the town? Seems that the intellect of the area would by necessity be higher than most areas around these parts.

That's right tax the ones that have to have the liquor.(i'm in favor of a user tax). you ain't gotta have liquor. and if you do you better get ready to pay a little more tax for it. that is simply fair.

don't tax groceries, and gas (fuel) we have to have these to survive and get to our jobs.

tax the hell out of cigarettes and alcohol you don't gotta have these...... right? hell yeah !!!!!!!

putting more liquor on the table would generate revenue; and just maybe put your spammer ass to not writing so much BS on this board. You think al capone got rich by selling coca cola ??? jackson brown... what's up with you homeys??????????
