Waverly liquor store expands

By Lynda Jensen

Sporting a bright new look, the Waverly Municipal Liquor Store officially reopened following a sizable expansion project this year.

The project added about 32 more feet of building to the east, and will include future expansion of the parking lot to the north, commented City Clerk Debbie Ryks.

“There’s 500 new products and 700 different kinds of packaging,” commented Off Sale manager Steve Gagnon. “We tripled our volume.”

The packaging means that there are more kinds of selection when it comes to six or 12-packs, Gagnon said.

“There’s a lot more selection,” agreed Wanda Tussing, manager of the on sale portion of the store.

The project included replacement of flooring and lighting, among other things. New shelving and additional coolers have also been added.

The atmosphere is brighter, with better prices because items can be purchased in bulk, Tussing said.

A delivery lane will be added on the north side of the building, but this is reserved for delivery trucks only and not open to through traffic, Clerk Debbie Ryks said.

A grand opening has been set for Saturday, Sept. 4, which will include a pig roast at 2 p.m. and special prizes and door prizes through the day.
