How Much Money To Open Alcohol Store?

You should allow a minimum of $165,000 for inventory. A good two register computer based checkout system will run $4,000 for hardware. 2 pc's, monitors, barcode scanners, keyboards, receipt printers, credit card scanner. POS software will be around $2-3,000. (But a good system is essential for keeping your inventory straight and printing sales reports)

Your shelving and display equipment will be in the area of $6,000 (look for used)

A 5 door beer cooler (used) will run you about $2,000 and another $2,00 for installation and wiring. The compressor system will be about $3000 installed.

You are probably going to want a glass breakage and motion detection alarm system installed - $2,500. And - a good 4 camera computer based instore security camera system with hardware/softward will be about $2,000.

I hope this helps.

50-100k with most of that going into inventory.
If you look at business listing you will find a lot of them for sale.
Not a lot of money in the smaller ones you see in strip malls.

first off you need to be able to get a liquor license...those cost about $2500.00 or more...so look up your state laws to see what you need..

besides a license, a store, shelving, liquor ( a distributor ), all the other stuff, food, mixers, etc...

you need to figure the cost of the building, liquor license, taxes, distributor costs, overhead, etc...

but remember, booze is a 600 - 800% mark up from retail, so you could stand to make some money
