(a) Population fluctuations, changes in consumer traffic patterns, and/or increased demand within a community during seasonal or peak periods due to tourism or other similar factors;
(b) Distance of the proposed Satellite Liquor Store from existing liquor store(s);

(5) The Retail Operations Manual, including any Satellite Liquor Store Appendix, and all other relevant Commission policies will apply to a Satellite Liquor Store unless otherwise provided in the Retail Sales Agent Agreement.
