Sam's Bottle Shop to Open In South Durham

Anybody a fan for this? The location is ironically in a bad intersection and next to a parts shop.

  1. What does " a bad intersection next to a parts shop" mean? How is that ironic?

      Sam's "Quik Shop" ain't so quick when its hard to get in/out due to a bad intersection. I'm happy to have Sam's on my end of town but I really can't think of many other locations that would provide for worse ease of access.

        Well I guess I'm just thinking that a place specializing in alcohol is right next to an auto shop. There is a wine bottle shop and an ABC store around the corner in Woodcroft.

          They also sell beer in a lot of gas stations, which has always sort of weirded me out.

      2. Sam's Quik Shop is probably the best beer store I've been to in my life

        1. I heard from an employee that Wednesday was a soft opening for them, so I'm surprised to hear they're open on Tuesday. I heard they'll have lots of great drafts.

          Since I live in Carrboro, Beer Study remains my bottle shop of choice

          1. Read the new store is two stories tall, sounds huge!
