“You are going to see even more growth in that area,” he said.

Liquor Commission Chairman Joseph Mollica said the liquor store will help increase state revenues.

“We view the Londonderry Travel Plaza site as a tremendous growth opportunity as the exposure to thousands of vehicles traveling along Interstate 93 will introduce more customers to the value and selection available at New Hampshire Liquor & Wine Outlets,” he said in a statement.

The commission has renovated and relocated 15 of its 77 stores in the last few years to boost revenues. They include stores in Hampstead and Plaistow.

The commission has also announced plans to replace its nearly 50-year-old store on South Broadway in Salem with a new building. The store had the fourth-highest sales in the state a year ago, grossing $23.3 million.

The success of the Salem store helped the commission set a state record for sales in fiscal 2013, with $603.5 million.

It was an increase of nearly 7 percent over the previous year. Mollica said sales so far this fiscal year are outpacing last year’s by $17.5 million.
