The buzz for a while now has been that it will become an Andy's Liquor store. A liquor license request for Andy's Liquor Express is pending in front of the Roch. City Council tonight for that location. The request says the store could open by July 1.
However, don't pop the cork yet. Titan Ventures (formerly Chafoulias Cos.) is just preparing options, said Titan Controller Jamie Radke this morning
He says that opening a smaller, express version of an Andy's store is certainly a leading possibility, but he prefers to remain cautious until everything is finalized.
When I talked to Radke back on May 21 on the same topic, this is what he said:
"When it is finalized, he will be exploring several retail options for the location, including a fourth family liquor store location. Nothing is set in stone right now," he said. "Andy is interested in growing business in the Rochester area and this is one of the options. Stay tuned."
You can count on that.
By the way, the word is that the tanks are being pulled from the 37th Street BP Pump and Munch today. So breaking with the Black Wednesday tradition, it appears this Munch closed on a Monday.
That leaves one still pumping - South Broadway and 16th Street.
