Busy Holiday for Buying the Bubbly

Posted:

One business is ringing in the New Year, with a lot of "chuh-chings".

That's because it's the best time of the year for champagne sales.

 "We had I know at least four or five cases of it, and I just found this one on the shelf all by itself."

This is the lone bottle left of this brand of the bubbly.

 "It was a zoo, we had all three registers going, all three of us working..." says JoAnn Bennett/Cashier.

The Cash Wise Liquor Store got cleaned out of crates and crates of booze, mainly champagne.

 "They're out to have a good time, and we hope for the best when they do that, it's just a good time." says Larry Brooks/Assistant Manager.

 "Happy go-lucky, they were asking us for help, and we'd take them right to what they needed, it was just a good crowd." says JoAnn Bennett.

 "We were busy right up until closing." says Brooks.

Assistant Manager Larry Brooks says sales were way up from the previous year, making 2013 pretty profitable so far.

 "Busy, hectic, it's a lot of fun, get to meet a lot of nice people." says Brooks.

Although Larry, and JoAnn did not partake in alcoholic festivities last night--they say it's obvious why so many choose champagne to ring in the new year.

 "The bubbly, I think it's the bubbly." says Bennett.

 "They just associate the celebration with champagne, you got to pop the cork." says Brooks.

New Years Day compared to New Years Eve is pretty quiet, but overall, the boozy holiday has businesses like this one, swimming in sales.

Workers say the nice thing is everyone who buys alcohol for New Year's is usually in a pretty jolly mood.

Unfortunately that might not be the case today!

If all that champagne has your head hurting a little extra, you might turn to a home remedy.

We wanted to know what people do to cure their New Years hangover.

"It's called work, you've got to tough it out if you want to keep going." Derek Galt/Northside Market.

"Just eat a lot, I think that'll cure it, most of the time (laughs) Jacinda Milk/Bismarck.

"I guess our claim to fame is the super grinders with the taco meat and extra sauces are something people have turned to in need of a hangover." Erika Landers/Northside Market.

"Super grinder, that's what I would go for." says Derek Galt.

Some other off-camera answers we got for a hangover cure, fresh air and the "hair of the dog" that bit you.
