                             Exhibit 99.1

AMCON DISTRIBUTING COMPANY REPORTS FULLY DILUTED EARNINGS OF $11.99 PER SHARE
FOR THE FISCAL YEAR ENDED SEPTEMBER 30, 2010.

                            NEWS RELEASE

Omaha, NE, November 8, 2010 - AMCON Distributing Company ("AMCON")(AMEX:DIT),
a consumer products company is pleased to announce fully diluted earnings
per share of $11.99 on net income available to common stockholders of $8.7
million for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2010.

"We are proud to have surpassed the $1 billion mark in sales for the first
time in the history of the Company. This achievement is a testament to the
high degree of collaboration between our management team, our loyal customer
base, and the major branded consumer products companies whose products we
distribute. Our organization is committed to enhancing our customers'
profitability. We believe this customer centric philosophy ultimately drives
our bottom line," said Christopher H. Atayan, AMCON's Chairman and Chief
Executive Officer.  "Our acquisition in Northwest Arkansas is fully
integrated into our operations and has been both a financial and operating
success. Further, our new retail health food store in Tulsa has performed
according to expectations," noted Mr. Atayan.

Each of AMCON's business segments reported excellent years. The wholesale
distribution segment reported revenues of $973.8 million and operating income
before depreciation and amortization of $18.6 million for all of fiscal 2010
and revenues and operating income before depreciation and amortization of
$260.0 million and $5.2 million, respectively, for the fourth fiscal quarter
of fiscal 2010. The retail health food segment reported revenues of $36.8
million and operating income before depreciation and amortization of $4.1
million for fiscal 2010 and revenue of $9.1 million and operating income
before depreciation and amortization of $0.9 million for the fourth fiscal
quarter of 2010.

"We will continue to focus on expanding our foodservice offerings in the
coming year. Foodservice products offer attractive gross profits for our
customers. In these difficult economic times our emphasis on premium service
continues to differentiate us from the competition," said Kathleen Evans,
President of AMCON's wholesale distribution segment.

"We continue to maintain a disciplined approach to new store openings," said
Eric Hinkefent President of AMCON's retail health food segment.  "We are
looking for the right locations with proper demographics that will optimize
our business model. Our stores stand for quality, service and a wide variety
of products at attractive prices. We continue to upgrade and enhance our
existing locations to deliver a first class retail experience," added Mr.
Hinkefent.












"From a financial perspective we continue to focus on maintaining balance
sheet liquidity. We believe this strategy enables AMCON to take advantage of
opportunities in the market place that will improve our customers'
profitability. Ultimately, this translates into profits for our shareholders.
We ended the fiscal year with total stockholders equity of $32.8 million and
we further reduced consolidated debt to $24.9 million," said Andrew Plummer,
AMCON's Chief Financial Officer.  "We are carefully evaluating various
capital projects in information technology and foodservice equipment that
will enhance our ability to compete in the market place," added Mr. Plummer.

AMCON is a leading wholesale distributor of consumer products, including
beverages, candy, tobacco, groceries, foodservice, frozen and chilled foods,
and health and beauty care products with locations in Arkansas, Illinois,
Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota and South Dakota. AMCON also operates
fourteen (14) health and natural product retail stores in the Midwest and
Florida.  The retail stores operate under the names Akin's Natural Foods
Market www.akins.com and Chamberlin's Market & Cafe www.chamberlins.com.

This news release contains forward-looking statements that are subject to
risks and uncertainties and which reflect management's current beliefs and
estimates of future economic circumstances, industry conditions, Company
performance and financial results. A number of factors could affect the
future results of the Company and could cause those results to differ
materially from those expressed in the Company's forward-looking statements
including, without limitation, availability of sufficient cash resources to
conduct its business and meet its capital expenditures needs. Moreover, past
financial performance should not be considered a reliable indicator of future
performance. Accordingly, the Company claims the protection of the safe
harbor for forward-looking statements contained in the Private Securities
Litigation Reform Act of 1995 with respect to all such forward-looking
statements.
