After 50 Years, New Beer Distributors Done in by Rent Hike
New Beer Distributors, the always-reliable booze shop on Chrystie Street, has but one day left on this mortal coil.
As first reported here in January, the beverage barn, so to speak, is kicked to the curb. Put to pasture after fifty years in business, thanks to a combination of rent hikes, taxes, and overall increase in costs of doing business. The news was first announced via handbills in the store, but made more official last week with a Facebook post.
Ownership told us that they’d like to reopen elsewhere in the neighborhood, but you know how that goes…
The somber news is accompanied by the requisite fire sale. Get there quick to enjoy 50% off everything left on the shelves. Furnishings, too. We also hear that they’ve secured an extension through Thursday to continue getting rid of stuff.
