“Welcome to Liquid Assets” is a familiar phrase David Radivonyk utters hundreds of times each day. David is the owner of Liquid Assets – Fine Wines & Spirits located at 995 Pontiac Avenue in Cranston, Rhode Island. David has owned the store since July 2014 and has spent many months sorting through inventory, organizing the store into easy-shopping departments, and adding new products to make the store a one-stop shopping experience for customers. “The customers have made this a great transition for me and have been very supportive throughout the transition. I always like hearing their suggestions about the products they like. We added many wines and have a great selection of Chilean and Italian wines. We also have a large selection of whiskey, scotch and bourbons. Customers have noticed the changes and say we have one of the best selections around.” says David. When asked what brought him to the business, David replied, “I retired from the phone company after 32 years and wanted, or maybe I needed, something to do. I put myself through college working at a liquor store and always liked it. I found this and the opportunity seemed right to get the store, make it into something good for the neighborhood, bring in an exciting product mix, and have fun living my dream. A very dear friend suggested the name Liquid Assets since I was investing part of my retirement into the store. It all seemed to fit. I added Fine Wines & Spirits to the name because it is no longer just a basic package store.”
Liquid Assets features beer and wine tastings most Fridays and Saturdays from 4-7pm. There are so many new products coming in all the time that the tastings make it a great way to try something new. The store also now features a craft beer selection that expands almost every week. There is a new mix-a-six section that features many craft beers and ciders that you can buy individually or as a six-pack. It lets you try several different beers or ciders to find a new favorite.
A lot has changed in the store since July, it is a great time to stop by a check out the new store.
