Facilities Information:

Unique space with custom build-out, very specialized interior extras, custom shelving, custom tasting/service counter, many other furnishing extras in this space. Second five-year option on current lease starts in late 2018.



A unique space with its own specific picks for wine and beer that the owner knows doesn’t compete with any larger chain grocery stores or liquor stores. This location is in a prime spot with major foot and vehicle traffic on a daily basis during run periods and before/after rush periods. Wine and beer seem to be sold everywhere these days, but the small guys cannot produce on a quantity level high enough to compete with the larger producers and so this type of retail shelf space is a perfect home for them.

Potential Growth:

A lot of opportunities exist to tailor this retail shop in a way that suits the new owner. The current owner did this and a new owner can shift in any direction that makes them happy. This business is fun for those who enjoy the product selections in their daily life and who enjoy helping other people learn/select a great wine or beer when they come in as a customer.
