(Cheyenne, Wyo.) - City Council held a meeting on the transfer of ownership and location
for a retail liquor
license, May 23.
In a 7-3 vote, Sam's Club will now be able to sell liquor after the
purchase of Cloud 9 Liquorland's retail liquor license. The big box store
plans to construct an 1,800 sq. ft. box inside of its location on Dell
Range Blvd. for their valued members to enjoy its convenience.
Sam's Club in Casper currently holds a retail liquor license, in which an
estimated $2 million in tax revenue is brought in each year, according to
Caleb Perkins, Sam's Club Manager in Casper. "We're not a competitor, we're
there for convenience," Perkins stated.
Tom Kingham, Owner of Cloud 9 Liquorland, sought out representatives with
the local Sam's Club on the potential transfer of ownership
of his liquor license following the
steady increase in Cheyenne's population.
