I heard that the wine store in blackstone is closing when their lease is up. Anyone know if that's true? Is someone else buying it or is it just closing? How come nice things in Blackstone don't last?

Yikes :-( Sure hope it is not true. Things can't last in Blackstone or any other community unless the citizens patronize them. Come on Blackstone, support this locally owned business!!

Yep I heard it was closing down too. The owners are giving up on it. It's a shame, it's barely had time to build up a client base. Virginia BBQ, Sydneys and now the wine shop. they have a good selection of beers too. :(

Its plain and simple people........Blackstone is stuck in the past you know the old days not that I care about the wine shop but others do but Blackstone is all about dbi and what they can get for themselves they love a business and when it get old to them its see ya later if the community of big wigs don't change and they haven't for 40 years at least nothing will ever be worth anything in blackstone

Not really a surprise to me that the wine store is closing. Personally I hate wine, but apart from that, just look at the demographics of Blackstone.
Look at the economics in Blackstone.
Look at the magazine rack at the grocery store here..one whole section of it is devoted to guns, another section is tabloids, and much of the rest is crap like Ebony and hip hop junk. Try to find Discover or Scientific American here. Try to find Bon Appetit or ANY gourmet or fine wine magazine. Most of the people in Blackstone think that Mad Dog and Boones Farm is fine wine.
Someone should've done a more in depth market analysis before they opened a quasi "gourmet" store here.
