Mt. Airy Liquor Store Closed

The state wine and spirits store is closed for an "emergency."

Those looking to buy wine and spirits in Mt. Airy will have to head out of the neighborhood for the time being.

The state Wine and Spirits Store at Germantown Avenue and Mt. Airy Avenue is closed until further notice, according to a sign on the front of the store.

It's a little unclear as to what closed the store (the sign on the door just says "closed due to emergency"), but there is some plywood up on the storefront.

The two closest area liquor stores are 8705 Germantown Avenue in Chestnut Hill and the corner of Chelten and Knox Street in Germantown.

Didn't a drunk driver recently drive into the store?

I am the deputy director of external affairs for the Liquor Control Board. This PA Wine & Spirits Store is NOT closed. It reopened last Saturday, January 26 at 9:00 a.m. The windows are boarded up until the landlord can make the repairs. Again, the store is open for business and has been all week. Can you please issue a correction on this story Nate? I did try to email you as well but didn't get a response. Thank you. Stacy Kriedeman

I just want to let the record show, Nate Adams, that your source for this story was a sign. A great reporter never reveals his sources, Nate Adams, and I appreciate that you did not name the sign. I can picture it all too clearly in my mind. You, Nate Adams, strolled up to the liquor store to pick up a fresh bottle of Wild Turkey, no doubt thinking about all of the interesting people you had himmed in the bar the previous night, your inquisitive mind practically tripping with glee over the idea of inking your arm with that glorious short-stack of pancakes tattoo, when the sign accosted you, beseeching you to print this piece of muckraking journalism. The sign practically begged you for anonymity, and, after hours of agonizing bargaining and ethical wrangling, you reluctantly granted it. Judith Miller, eat your heart out. Nate Adams has arrived.
