Welcome to Ann Street Liquor
Located at 18 North Main Street, Anne Street Liquor has been in part of Little Falls for many years, and this quaint size store is packed full of a wonderful range of wines and liquors. Ruth and the late Dan Pazzanese purchased the store in 1975 when they relocated from the Boston area to Little Falls for Dan's career with Salada Tea. Currently, Ruth covers the ownership duties on a part time basis and leaves the management to Carlo Fiorentino. Carlo, originally from Herkimer, spent several years on the West coast and returned to the Mohawk Valley area in 2007 and has been recommending wines and liquors ever since.
Early on when first working with the Pazzanese's, Carlo advise was to "game it up", meaning to strengthen and grow the business to be a solid part of the city. Making a point to really know the customers and sell it to them, by providing them what they needed, which easily might be a different brand or quality of spirits and this has been essential to the foundation of the business. Carlo expressed his job "is to make people of the Little Falls happy", and with the array of spirits offered it's an easy job. There is much more offered than just the "happy spirits" at Anne Street Liquors.
Special ordering for customers is available, and often these special requests become "new products on the shelf", and volume purchases on cases of wines are discounted by 10%. Suggestions for "Food Pairing", matching the appropriate wine or liquor to the menu, are part of the services provided by Carlo and the part time staff of four. Holiday seasonal times are very busy, and the manager has found the prepackaged "Gift Sets", to be very popular for that unique special gift. All of these services are examples of the expertise of small independent businesses, making shopping a pleasant personal experience.
Support within the community is through donations to many local benefits, and being committed to Think Local Little Falls. Each Third Thursday of the month, various specials are offered to support "thinking and shopping locally first". Stroll on down to Anne Street Liquors to check out the new look, the great services and savings!
