If You Build It They Will Come ... and Buy Liquor!

Dacula package store referendum passes by significant margin.

Who's ready for a drink?

Apparently the residents of Dacula are.

The voters have spoken and the package store referendum passed on Tuesday by an overwhelming 181-76 margin. I personally signed a petition long ago to convince leaders to put it to a vote.

The votes are in and the people say "Let's buy some liquor!"

I know this is a hot topic for a lot of people in this town. Liquor stores on every corner could have a negative effect on the area. That's not going to happen, so don't worry. Dacula isn't big enough to support more than one and the store Russ Weaver, the man behind this whole thing, will build is going to be nice. Quoting Mr. Weaver from Dacula Patch..."I’m going to open one of the best stores in
Georgia. It’s going to be really nice.”

You know the old movie line ..."If you build it they will come." Well I'm guessing that if you set up a 6-foot table in the Kroger parking lot they would come based on the vote count. What I'm hoping for, and what the rendering shows, is a nice building that blends in well with it's surroundings.

There is quite of bit of work to be done before construction can begin but the largest hurdle has been jumped. This will definitely be great for tax revenue for Dacula. I just hope they have a good selection of tequila!
