Edmonton, Alberta CANADA, September 05, 2012 /FSC/ -The Inaugural Alberta Venture 250 ranking of Alberta's highest grossing companies has been announced. Among the recipients of the ranking was Rocky Mountain Liquor Inc. (TSX-V: RUM) ("Rocky Mountain Liquor" or "RUM" or the "Company). Rocky Mountain Liquor placed 220 in Ranking Alberta's highest grossing companies based on 2011 results.
The ranking published in the September issue of Alberta Venture and online at v250.albertaventure.com was evaluated on the 2011 revenue of Andersons Liquor Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of RUM. The complete ranking is available at http://v250/?company_id=2566&myyear=2011&sort=rank&industry.
This is Rocky Mountain Liquor's third growth award this year. In February, the Company was awarded the Alberta Venture Magazine's Fast Growth 50 Award for Alberta based
companies for a second consecutive time, and in June, awarded the Profit 200 ranking Canada's Fastest-Growing Companies by five-year revenue growth, also for a second consecutive year.
Peter Byrne CEO of Rocky Mountain Liquor said "It has taken Andersons Liquor Inc. 11 years of steady growth to achieve inclusion in the top 250 grossing companies in Alberta. The trifecta of repeating National recognition by PROFIT, repeating the Fast Growth 50 Award by Alberta Venture magazine this year and now being ranked in the Alberta Venture 250 in the rankings' inaugural year is a dynamic boost of confidence for our team. It is through the hard work and high standards from our executive team, store level and fulfilment center staff, in providing a superior customer experience at our 43 stores throughout Alberta that makes such Provincial and National awards possible. They all deserve this recognition for their fabulous work ethic in helping to realize such successes.
Of course we would not be able to achieve any of these awards if customers did not find value at our stores. We wish to thank our customers for their loyalty, from which their millions of repeat visits have helped us to accomplish these awards."
