Nisswa's liquor sales stood out on the list, with $3,512,358 in sales and a net profit of $302,039.  Although this year's figure is down slightly from the previous year's profits—$338,684—it's nearly six times the profits in 2008, which were $51,792 between Spirits of Nisswa and Ye Olde Pickle Factory (or simply "The Pickle"), Nisswa's two municipal stores. Spirits of Nisswa is an off-sale store, whereas Ye Olde Pickle Factory is a bar and restaurant. BrainerdDispatch.com Illustration
