I'm not sure what all the negativity is about... This is a busy liquor store where I have seen everything from bums to businessmen. In my experiences, the staff can range from lazy to incredibly helpful, just like any other business. I

I still go to this place just because it's the closest to my house, but I wish there was another liquor store around. The guys always rush you and act like you're taking up too much of their time if you have a question. I went in here 2 days ago and was looking for a specific bottle that I had heard about on the radio. I asked the guy behind the counter and he looked at me like I was an idiot before giving me the wrong bottle. (I believed him until I got home and tasted it.) This is not the only bad experience I've had with this place, only the most recent. My friend also said that she had one of the employees be VERY rude to her because she asked them what brand to buy. They do have decent prices, but I would guess that the second guy commenting on this place probably works here.

OK.... So. Despite what the previous idiot said, this liquor store is the best i have ever been to. First off... they dont lie about the products that they carry... they have products they specifically hold for the restaurants and bars that they do buisness with... which account for 80% of the buisness they do.. Second, they have all cheap products out front including potters and monarch and every store you go to is going to try to up sell you... IS THIS NOT RETAIL ?????? Anyways.. dont believe this guy.... he is just a old spiteful mad take all his problems out on everybody he can have no life worthless piece of ----,,, have a nice day !

Pros: service

Cons: parking

The employees lie and tell you that they do not carry things if you try to buy a cheap bottle of liquor. They do carry Potters and Monarch but they will lie and say they don't. to trick you into buying name brand bottles. They tricked me this way several times until a local bartender informed me that they do carry such items in the back. Today when I tried to call the guy on it, he admitted he had just lied to me but that he can't go to the back because he was the only employee working. However, when I made a stink about waiting ten minutes for him to help another customer and then refusing to grab me a bottle he asked another employee to help me. It took 15 seconds for the other employee to grab me the bottle. This company is full of dishonest employees.

Pros: They have liquor

Cons: They lie about what they carry

This store is only a block away from the Multnomah County Central Library. Parking is street only, very congested, and metered. Staff are sometimes friendly and usually sufficiently knowledgeable. Owner is something of a curmudgeon (understandably) and apparently a man of high moral principles in that he refuses to profit from the scams that are the various state and multi-state lotteries. Product (including reasonably-priced smokes) is displayed behind wonderfully corny glossy spar-varnished plywood counters apparently fabricated in someone's garage. Also displayed behind the registers is a leather-wrapped aluminum ball bat reputedly useful in dealing with knuckleheads.
