Molto Formaggio in Highland Park Village now selling liquor
Filling in the breach since Centennial closed.
"We sold wine since we were open, but now we have liquor, too," said owner Michael Perlmeter. "After the Centennial closed in February, the Village had no package store, so we stepped in."
To make room, they added a bunch of shelving, he said.
"We still have the same food products, cheeses, pastas, meats, the only thing we reduced a little bit was some of the chocolates," he said. "Obviously, it's not as full a selection as a big liquor warehouse, but we have all the staple core brands and some of the more boutique precious items in each category -- the single malt scotches, the good vodkas, the things people want."
On May 15, they'll introduce a delivery service for folks in the neighborhood. One other change: They're now closed on Sundays.
"We were open from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sundays, and now that we have liquor, we have to be closed," he said. "I'll miss it because Sunday was a lot of the same people every week and that was kindof fun. But I'll figure it out -- I'm sure my wife will find all sorts of honey-dos for me."
