New manager at city-owned liquor store
Though he was perfectly happy at his former job, Jim Watland decided a change might be nice.
On April 1, he started his new job as manager of Lakes Liquor in Detroit Lakes.
“I heard about the opportunity, it piqued my interest and I applied,” he said.
Born and raised in Detroit Lakes, Watland has worked the last nine years for Altria Group (the parent company of Philip Morris Company) but he’s better known in Detroit Lakes as managing Evans for many years.
