The original store was built shortly after World War II. The Southwestern part of the property was a drive-up store with a garage door and walk-up counter that sold beer, ice, sodas, and snacks. The Southeastern part of the property was a walk-up carry-out that sold fried chicken.
The present ownership bought the property in 1965. Wine was added to the existing beer store in 1970 and the beer & wine store was joined to the chicken carry-out in 1982 allowing customers to come in and shop instead of walking up to the counter.
In 1987, the store expanded into the shopping center to the north and offered an extensive wine section and full scale deli. Our deli features sandwiches, home made salads, and meats and cheeses sliced to order.
Our latest expansion occurred in 2014 with the addition of liquor and a 25-seat full service bar that can be accessed either from Coastal Highway or from within our store. We are very proud of our new bar, which is a quiet, off-the-beaten path type of place that features craft beers on tap, mixed drinks and sandwiches from our deli. We also host tastings in our bar allowing customers to sample craft beers, wines, and liquors from the breweries, vineyards and distilleries that produce them.
In closing, we would like to thank our customers, both locals and visitors, who have been the force behind our evolution from a small drive-up to what we are today. We have always tried to adhere to our original principals of quality, selection, and friendly service. We wholeheartedly appreciate your continued support as we go forward.
