‘Walmart of liquor’ fighting for store in New York
But established booze merchants don’t want the competition.
(From the New York Post)
The case is being closely watched by booze sellers in New York City, who fear that Total Wine’s rock-bottom pricing could threaten their business across the five boroughs if the company prevails, sources said.
A 750-ml bottle of Maker’s Mark bourbon costs $23.99 at Total Wine’s store in Westbury, LI — its only store in New York — compared with $35.99 at Zachys, a popular store in Scarsdale.
