hey jerry,, I also been to both stores,, I think your wrong. I spent sometime on both,, looked around, the one off 66.. had alot more wine selection and the liquor was very well priced & better products.. plus its seems like the one off 66 was $2-4 dollars cheeper across the board.. plus they have case disc.. was a very friendly experience and my wife and I will be back.. its was a cleaner store, and we felt safe walking in .. didn't feel like we were gonna get mugged like the one off Washington st..that store is too dark and looks like a jail...will never go back to it..

What is the name of this new liquor store? I'm personally glad we have the stores. Think of how much revenue they will be bringing in.

Or how many it will save from some of these drunks not having to drive back as far as they did coming back from Morristown and Kingsport.

Still think Washington street is a bad location. THis isnt Morristown and the Cork and Keg been there 40 plus years now behind the old sky city shopping center.

Location in this town makes or breaks a business especially if there is more than 1 and the others are in a more travelled by, and seen location and easier to get to.. Thats just my opinion.
who gives a flying flip?

I think it is in an ideal location, simply put it is out of the prying eyes of all the nosey and gossiping people like those who post on this so enlightening board. The only reason I even came here today was to see how bad Mary's was getting bashed and needless to say I am not disappointed. I have yet to see a new business go in this town that the same old bitch and moaners aren't on here bashing it. It is obvious that you don't work, don't have a life and have nothing better to do than be couch critics. I have been to Mary's twice, not once have I felt uncomfortable, afraid, unwelcome or any of the other glowing adjectives that have been used here. Also, the prices are competetive with any other liquor store you will go in. Try driving to Kingsport and see what you pay or better yet go to any resturant and pay for it by the drink and see how expensive it is. For those of you who are angry there is a liquor store in your neighborhood then it is simple don't go in it, don't buy from it and don't drink the product, nobody is forcing you!! We are all adults and are free to make adult decisions. I for one know that EVERYBODY is carded that buys from Mary's so unless you are 21 don't even bother going to the door you won't be able to purchase it. So before you start bashing everything about them why don't you stop in and say Hi you might just find out you like the people who work there and that they like you too.

Apparently you didnt read or get the point. LOCATION.......... Washington street IS NOT a heavily traffic street and is off and out of the way.

If they compare sales for a month each, after say 2 months when the new of having them here wears off, the Hwy 66 location will do probablly at least 4 times more in sales a month DUE to it being a better location that people will see than one on Washington st thats gonna take a lot of dollars to advertise so people will even know it's there, much less remember its there...

Im not downing it, bashing it, Hope it does good and glad they are finally in town its just as I said above, Bad Location.

I believe locals will go to the Washington Street store because those owners live here. The other owners don't and something smelled funny about the fact they were the only ones who had their application done right. Also, not everybody in Rogersville who wants to buy alcohol wants to parade right into a store in 66 Plaza.

Hope they do but dis-agree. convience is the factor and people dont really care these days who see them. Some do but not like back in the day.
Time will tell and do wish them well but location is a factor with ANY business. Been there done that!!!!!!!!!

I think prominent "locals" will still use the stores in other counties. Other folks will visit the store with the lowest prices.

Some of these "business geniuses" need to join the crappy chamber of commerce to help further discourage local businesses.

Went to Mary's first time this week. Nice clean store, well lighted, well stocked, friendly service. I agree with the above post that the 66 store is managed/owned by Kingsport people. Mary's is owned by local people. I prefer to shop with our local people.
