Big Red Liquors pursues its monopoly in Indianapolis. Someone fetch me my musket.

Talk to NABC that way, and the Curmudgeon will write about it - now, tomorrow, and forever more, until an apology is forthcoming.

Here's to you, Glum John. Another year has almost passed, so make it ten.

Nine years later, and absolute power still corrupts Big Red Liquors absolutely.

Just last year, the cold war came close to flaring. Seems Glum John forgot his place.

Big Red's intent to stock NABC is an intolerable provocation.

But hostilities were averted.

Truce in our time.

Now the fascistic monopolists are at it again, this time seeking a stranglehold on the Indianapolis market. Time for another Lincoln Brigade.

Big Red acquires United Package Liquors, by Scott Olson (Indianapolis Business Journal)

Bloomington-based Big Red Liquors is expanding into Indianapolis by acquiring the assets of United Package Liquors Inc. and taking over operations of the chain’s 24 local stores.

Terms of the transaction, announced Monday afternoon, were not disclosed.

Under the agreement, the United Package stores will operate under the banner of Big Red. Big Red will sign long-term leases for all locations with Indianapolis-based LOR Corp, a local real estate development firm that owns the United Package chain.

Big Red, founded in 1972, already owns and operates 25 stores in south-central Indiana, including 13 in Bloomington, and plans to open three additional locations this year in the Indianapolis area, the company said.
