City Council allows Sam's Club to purchase liquor license from Cloud 9 Liquorland

(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. #shortgo #news #whatshappening
