People aren’t buying enough booze. The Tryon ABC store was shut down for an audit in September:

. . . and remains closed while the ABC board works out a plan of how to reopen.

At one point, the store owed approximately $30,000. The landlord gave the store a break on rent, and the town gave it a $10,000 subsidy. $17,000 in inventory was sold to the City of Asheville, so the store only owes about $8000 now. The audit determined about $3000 of liquor was missing.
