Published: September 19,2012
MISSISSIPPI GULF COAST — July sales were up in most cities across South Mississippi and topped $1 million for the third straight month in Biloxi.
The Sun Herald reports Mayor A.J. Holloway attributed the increases to the opening of the new Walmart Supercenter, Margaritaville Casino and Sharkheads souvenir shop since spring.
The August report released by the Mississippi Department of Revenue is for sales tax collected by businesses in July. The state diverted $132,000 more in sales tax diversions to Coast cities than a year ago.
Ocean Springs posted its fourth consecutive month of gains and Pascagoula its third month of gains after being down for the last fiscal year.
