Neighborhood Wine and Spirits.

Owner: Doug McDowall Address: 4526 Camp Robinson Road, North Little Rock, 72118, 791-2626 Start-up date: August

Doug McDowall believes his store's success can be explained very simply. He says he offers reasonable prices six days a week, rather than running daily specials as many stores do.

"A lot of customers tell me our regular prices are better than 'wine day' prices elsewhere," McDowall says.

Along with a good selection of Arkansas products, McDowall has added many new items to his stock.

"When a customer requests something, I order it for them and try to keep it in stock," he says.

His "good service and fair prices" philosophy seems to be paying off. The store's November sales topped October sales by 33 percent.

"We're not where we want to be, but we're headed that way," McDowall says.
