**the jist** - Small selection, unknowledgeable staff, racist on several occasions, more expensive than several local stores, also keeps beer on shelves past "good before" date.

Now, the review of Holiday Wine & Spirits Chamblee GA.

I frequently visited this bottle shop for a large number of purchases. I always had a nice time while in the store, up until this evening.

I was checking out, paying with my debit card as always and noticed that they were charging me for credit prices, which are substantially higher than cash/debit purchases.

When I asked the so called "manager" about the issue, he told me I should take my business somewhere else if I didn't agree with it. I knew the old man speaking was indeed NOT a manager, so I just opted to go ahead and make the purchase, then contact the real store manager via telephone.

When I called the store, I asked for the manager, and a young man whom I've spoken with in person before answered the phone. I told him about the issue, and he seemed to care less about what had happened. I notified him that every single bottle shop in Atlanta whom does the cash/credit pricing always accepted debit transactions as cash, as this same store has done for me for the last five months of shopping there.

**This is where is goes REALLY south**
When I notified the "manager" that I was on several review websites, as well as BeerAdvocate and RateBeer, and would write a review about my experience in the store, he proceeded to scream into the phone, "SUCK MY D***, SUCK MY D***, SUCK MY D***!" He shouted this over and over for almost three minutes strait, and then broke off into screaming "You must be a f**king meth head" and, "I want you to drive down here and suck my f**king d**k in the parking lot".

This managers name is Grady Lucky Jr. He apparently only got his job because he works with "daddy" Grady Lucky Sr.

Bottom line, I will NEVER spend my money at this store again, under any circumstances! I have read several other reviews about this stores racial hatred, and bigotry used against people of ethnic background (I am caucasian btw) and I refuse to support any business using those practices.

Do yourself a favor, and drive the extra three minutes to TOWER's wine & spirits. They have a much better selection, more knowledgeable staff which isn't racist, and honors the cash/debit purchases like these businesses are supposed to.

I'd give Holiday bottle shop a ZERO out of 5 stars if possible. Stay away from this store, and spend your money with people whom truly appreciate it.

Holiday has the best selection in Chamblee if not all of Atlanta. The staff really knows their stuff. I was on my way home from one of the many great restaurants on Buford Hwy. When I made this great discovery. They have an excellent selection of craft beers. Their wine selection is amazing. They have all the affordable ($7-$14) highest rated wines and a great selection of high end US and French wines. I saw Joseph Phelps Insignia and Dominus and some Rothchild bordeaux. They have great prices on wines and beer and their liquor prices are very competitive if not the lowest. I don't drink much of the hard stuff these days. 55 stars!

I have been going to holiday since I moved to the Dresden neighborhood 2 years ago. They are the best! It really seems like every time I am in there, they have something new that's great! I signed up for their newsletter that has great wine recommendations and the insider scoop on the specials going on. Even though they cater to lots of different ethnicities, which is a good thing....it still feels like a "normal" liquor store. Their wine selection, though limited, has the best selection of affordable wines I have ever seen. It's definitely not like the creepy other stores in the area.

I was in Holiday last night and I could not believe my eyes!!! They have totally revamped the store and it is amazing! The employees are very helpful and knowledgeable about the liquors and they carry some GREAT inexpensive wines. The one they recommended was a Malbec from Argentina called Zolo, It was amazing!!! I have lived in Chamblee for 5 years and I am so happy I rediscovered this neighborhood "gem".

I found the staff to be very helpfull even when the store was crowded. They have the LARGEST selection of liquor and beer in the area for the best prices. They have everything from the very high-end cogniacs, scotches, and tequillas to cheap vodka and gin. The downfall is a limitd wine selection, but Kroger is near by and has a great selection.

PROS: Cheap beers, great selection of liquers especially Tequilla and Scotch
CONS: Not a great wine selection but most popular brands are in stock

Oh I like the Holiday Package Store. They have imported wines and beers that often times make great holiday gifts. They also have great wine magazines, and the customer service is terrific. They have great chaddoney, brandy, and champagne.
