Longtime Tulsa liquor store plans move


A LONG TIME TULSA LIQUOR SCORE IS GEARING UP TO MOVE REQUIRING CHANGES BY NEW STATE LAWS READY TO TAKE EFFECT. PARK HOUSE LIQUOR AND WINE HAS BEEN AROUND NEARLY 50 YEARS. HERE’S HOW THIS STORE WILL BE ONE OF THE FIRST TO MEET ALL THE REQUIRED CHANGES. Reporter: THE BUSINESS HAS BEEN SELLING CHAMPAGNE, WINE AND LIQUOR FOR DECADES AND THE BUSINESS OWNER SAYS IT WILL MAKE ALL THE NEW CHANGES AN ENTIRE YEAR AHEAD OF THE DEADLINE. VERY PROACTIVE, READY FOR THE CHANGES. Reporter: PARKHILL’S WAREHOUSE LIQUORS AND WINE HAS CALLED 51st AND LEWIS HOME FOR OVER FIVE DECADES, BUT SOON THEIR CURRENT BUILDING WILL BE TORN DOWN.

REGULATIONS ON HOURS OF OPERATION, REFRIGERATION AND SELLING OF NONALCOHOLIC ITEMS WILL ALL CHANGE. THE OWNER SAYS HE’S REQUIRED TO MAKE ALL THOSE CHANGES BY OCTOBER OF 2018.

THEY’VE ALREADY BEGUN CONSTRUCTION AT THE NEW SITE DIRECTLY BEHIND THE CURRENT BUILDING WHICH MANY LONG TIME CUSTOMERS ARE HAPPY ABOUT. CONVENIENT FROM THE HIGHWAY, CONVENIENT FOR ME, CONVENIENT FOR MOST OF TULSA. IT’S CENTRALLY LOCATED. I THINK IT’S IMPORTANT TO STAY CLOSE TO WHERE YOU’VE BEEN ALL THESE YEARS.
