December – Konstantinou’s Liquor, 2024 NYS Route 104

Jeanee, George, and Prodromos Konstantinou

Prodromos (Pro) Konstantinou states that his father said ten years ago, “We should open a liquor store”. This suggestion came from the lack of a reliable supply of wine and whiskey in the area. Konstantinou attempted to purchase the local liquor store but was unsuccessful. This unsuccessful attempt to purchase an existing store led directly to the renovation of existing space and opening the new facility at Konstantinou Corner. The liquor store opened November 11, 2008. The store has been doing well ever since it opened. We have good visibility and access here. The size of this store is just right.

Konstantinou tries to carry the items that people want. To do this Konstantinou relied on the local distributors. As time advanced, Pro started to remove items from the shelf that did not move. This gave him the opportunity to place requested items on the shelf. The same held true for requested items, if they don’t move, they are removed and replaced with another product. This is a great way to keep the stock fresh and interesting. In addition to Ouzo, Konstantinou Liquor stocks five Greek wines, and several Greek spirits, including ” Metaxas”, a Greek Brandy.

As one may expect, the Holidays are the best time to sell liquors. This includes all of the holidays but especially the time just before Christmas through the New Year. Konstantinou says “Those two holidays take the cake”.

Konstantinou states that he deals with the two major distributors in the area, as well as several smaller ones. We also deal with several wineries directly.

Wine tastings are sponsored by the wineries. We have to coordinate with the winery for the dates and times. We usually do tasting on Thursday, Friday or Saturday. The tastings are usually between 5 to 8 pm. If folks choose to purchase wine at tasting, we usually offer a discount.

We offer a 10% discount if you purchase a case of wine. The case of wine can be a mixed variety. We do special orders, if a client asks us for something we do not stock, we will research the product for them and then order it if they wish. For our 187-milliliter products, we offer personalized labels. These make great favors for special events. There are 4 employees in the store.

The hours of operation are 9 am to 9 pm except for Sunday, which are 12 Noon to 9 pm
