The first six-pack was purchased by the North Mississippi Herald and the dated receipt will be kept for historical purpose.
The store received 595 cases of beer during the first two days of sales, according to Tammy Maclin, 2nd assistant leader for the store. Sales the first day were $1700, she added.
“You can’t get through here,” she said, commenting on the amount of beer in the store.
It has always been rumored that beer could be purchased illegally at some places in the county in the years since the 1937 vote to outlaw sales.
