It is with the greatest sadness that we announce the closing of Brewers’ Outlet at our current location on Saturday November 15th, 2014.
Unfortunately due to several properties under an acquisition agreement with CVS, our current location is being sold and our warehouse/retail store will be demolished in the near future.
This has developed in a “perfect storm” manner and this development is not Brewers’ Outlet desire and completely out of our control. We hope over time the story can be told respectfully, so our loyal customers understand why and how this occurred.
Brewers’ Outlet has been in business for 51 years in Pottsville, PA and in our current location since 1976. RSC Beverages, Inc has owned the business since 2000. Throughout our 51 years and the last 15 years under current management, Brewers’ Outlet has had the great pleasure of serving our customers. Our mission of providing the “best selection at the lowest price” has driven our staff to serve our customers with excellent service.
We have been receiving potential relocation opportunities since we were made aware of the CVS agreement. Unfortunately we have not found an adequate location to date when faced with the importance of location, ability to retain the current customer base, overhead costs and the ability to cover relocation costs with Brewers’ margins. We continue to review all opportunities. For now, time has necessitated that we conclude the business at the current location.
Only time will tell if there is a future for Brewers’ Outlet in a new location. If not, we have been truly blessed by our loyal customers. This includes all of our retail customers, but also includes a very significant wholesale business including all of our restaurants, bars, taverns, and PLCB licensed six pack businesses. We truly have been blessed by our loyal customers and in return we have worked to exceed customer service expectations. We are very thankful for your loyalty and support. By our track record, we believe in most cases our excellent staff has achieved the mission goals. We have the sincerest gratitude to our staff, both the current and all those who have worked for Brewers’ Outlet over the past 51 years.
We sincerely thank each and everyone who have made Brewers’ Outlet the preferred beverage destination over the last five decades.
With the greatest gratitude,
Liz & Bob Carl
and our “Amazing Brewers’ Outlet Staff”
