The New Hampshire Liquor Commission says it posted record sales of $642 million in the fiscal year that ended June 30.

Officials say that marks an increase of $21 million in sales over the previous year.

Net profits transferred into the General Fund also set a new record at nearly $152 million.

Liquor Commission Chairman Joseph Mollica says innovative marketing and sales initiatives and a successful holiday season drove the record gains.

The commission operates 78 stores around the state — including the 24,000-square-foot store that opened in Salem in June and the newly-renovated stores on both sides of Interstate 93 near the Hooksett tolls.
