A Letter Of Thanks From A.J. Jambhekar

Dear Patrons,

It is bittersweet to inform you that after 19 years of serving this community’s wine and spirit needs, I have decided to sell the business and retire. While I am excited for retirement, it would be a disservice to not reflect on the road to this point. With this, I wanted to take the time to thank each and every one of you for your support over the years. My family and I greatly appreciated your business as well as getting to know many of you on a personal level. Whether it was sourcing your favorite hard-to-find craft beer, tracking down a rare bourbon or finding that Cabernet you tried and loved at a restaurant, seeing a truly satisfied customer was my greatest pleasure.

The new store has opened under the name LiquorSplit. Getting to know them through the acquisition process, I gained tremendous confidence they will continue to provide this community great service for all your alcohol needs.

I wish you all the best moving forward and hope to see you around in the community.

Sincerely, Ajay A.J. Jambhekar.
