November marks the fortieth anniversary of Firehouse Liquor in their current location. Jerry and Karleene bought the on/off sale business back in 1972, when it was located in the old bank building on Railway Street where Dawn's Corner Bar is now. In 1983 they moved the off sale to a 4,200 square foot location on Hwy 3 where Aldi's is now located.
In 2000 Sean bought the business from his parents and moved to the present building, which had formerly housed the C.T. Farm Supply. This new 10,000 square foot building has allowed them to grow. "We have expanded over the years and our inventory is now twenty-fold what it was when we purchased it in 2000", Sean commented. "There are always new items."
Firehouse liquor is open everyday except for Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter.
