Here are some photos we took of the exterior and interior of the Coffee Shop and Liquor Store before we moved in. Just for the record I never wanted to own a Liquor Store. The Liquor Store, like some freak appendage came with the Coffee Shop. From day one I hated everything about it. I hated the merchandise and I hated the customers. Now Hate is a pretty strong word, but from the “snack” food, to the pints of cheap Vodka, to the cigarettes, to the candy, to the alcoholics lined up at 6 a.m. with pocketsful of panhandling change, I never liked it. I suppose looking back we could have converted the liquor store into a high end wine shop. I just watched as the customers on the Spirits side slowly went downhill, while the customers on the Coffee Shop side ascended. After one year we closed the Liquor Store, expanded the Coffee Shop and we never looked back.
