  1. What sets your business apart?

We want to make our customers happy, if we don’t have something they are looking for we will get it for them. We like to communicate with our customers to find out their needs and wants. We have an impressive Wine & Spirit collection, we want to give people a wide selection and make sure they are happy walking out the door. 

  1. Why Glenview?

I was born and raised in the Glenview area, and now have a home with my wife in Glenview. My father also owned a liquor store in Glenview for 35 Years called J&F Liquors. I learned a lot from him, especially how well he treated his customers and how loyal they were to his business in return. I only managed and ran the store for a short period of time before we sold it. Later, when when I found out about the location freeing up in Downtown Glenview, I did not hesitate to jump on the opportunity. Now most of his old customers come to us and support our new location. 


  1. You might be surprised to know…

I graduated from DePaul University and worked in the banking industry. I did not expect to be here today, but am so glad to be my own boss and to work in business where I can make people happy.
