As everyone is well aware, the Financial District of Manhattan was heavily impacted by the wrath of Hurricane Sandy, which caused flooding in the streets and massive store closures throughout the area. Except, of course, for Financial District Wine & Liquor, the downtown liquor store that was able to stay open throughout the entire hurricane with a big supply of candles and battery backups (and of course, a huge stock of wine and liquor).
Financial District Wine & Liquor’s perseverance through the storm received media coverage from CBS News, WHDH in Boston and Norwegian Radio, all of which highlighted stories about New York City businesses that managed to stay open through Hurricane Sandy.
Locals in the area who wanted relaxation and libation during the aftermath of the hurricane were delighted to find that Financial District Wine & Liquor was the only store open for several blocks. The downtown liquor store even had ice until Thursday, allowing wine lovers to keep their white wines chilled just so.
Although it’ll take a long time and hard work to get Wall Street and the surrounding area back to business as usual, at least commuters and locals can pick up their favorite liquor and wine from their friendly neighborhood liquor store, Financial District Wine & Liquor, and enjoy with their friends and family.
