  1. Anyone know what is going on with JT’s liquor in Ho-Ho-Kus, it looks closed.

  2. When I grew up here there were a lot more liquor stores in town.
    Maybe they feel the ‘pinch’ from competition.
    After a trip to Total Wine in River Edge, I vowed to never overpay for booze again.

  3. It always looks closed. Kings in Ridgewood is already tight for space where will the liquor department be?

  4. JT’s liquor license was bought out by the owner of the building. I heard basically forced them out in a messy deal.

  5. Cervino’s was kind of convenient if you were at a nearby BYOB without YOB. But there is a better store just across Ridgewood Ave.

  6. As a born European who moved here many years ago, I have never understood the absurd rules that govern liquor sales here. In Europe, every supermarket, grocery store, restaurant, some movie theaters, cafe, bar, and night club, sells liquor. None of this highly expensive liquor license stuff.

    The absurd rules are in New Jersey.
    In NY you may apply for and receive a liquor license. None of the NJ “BS” that bases it upon population, and restricting the ‘supply’ so that in order to purchase a license to ‘serve’ at a restaurant will cost you over $500,000 in Ridgewood.
    NY and MA are the same that I know of where you simply apply and pay an annual fee.
    NJ gets the ‘stupid’ award for this one.

  8. I know the guys at JT’s very well and bought my booze there for 20 years. The business was for sale for awhile and the deal to buy it was amicable. The owner wanted to retire after being in business for 30 years.
