ALBANY,  GA (WALB) –  It's one of the busiest days of the year at package stores all over the nation.

At the Warehouse Package store in Albany dozens of people filled the store New Year's eve to buy alcoholic beverages for New Year's celebrations.

In fact, the store's sales typically double on Christmas Eve and New Year's Eve.

The owner urges customers to drink responsibly.  "And we just want to remind everyone not to drink and drive this holiday season and ruin a New Years Eve," said Louis Bernard.

Sparkling wine and champagne were the biggest sellers.
