CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, June 13. June 19, 2003.27 Ice House Liquors moves north to Rehoboth Avenue Extended By Karl Chalabala Two Cape Region liquor stores are undergoing significant changes. People looking for Ice- house Liquors, previously located next to The Grove park on Re- hoboth Avenue, will find it moved approximately 500 yards north on Rehoboth Avenue Extended. Vis- itors to Atlantic Liquors on Route 1 will certainly notice an exten- sive construction project taking place on and around the building. "The old owner of Icehouse Liquors rented from Mr. Me- quay," said Dale Lomas, who along with partner Mike Subrick own both Icehouse Liquors and Atlantic Liquors. "When he passed away the city wanted to buy the property. We agreed to rent the property for five years and then move." This year's inclement spring weather delayed progress on construction, but Lomas said the city "couldn't have been more supportive and understanding." Icehouse Liquors' old location sharply contrasts to the new build- ing. The old location's brick exte- rior and multiroom interior were one of the last buildings on Re- hoboth Avenue before crossing the canal. The modern beach- style new building's entrance hides between two buildings, but a sign will be installed soon. "The new sign will be up in about four weeks," Lomas said. "We felt it was the best location because we were able to provide our customers with parking. Had we moved into downtown Re- hoboth, our customers wouldn't have that option." Slightly larger than the old building, Lomas said the building is a more efficient and economical square feet. We are jammed up for space When we get bu*y, managing flow becomes a big concern, especially during the summer season." The new addition will provide more retail and storage space for Atlantic Liquors, space for two small retail shops and upstairs apartments. The addition to the existing building will look the same: a gray metal exterior. How- ever, the new retail space will fea- ture a stucco facade. "We want the two stores to look different from the liquor store," Lomas said. "That way they'll have their own identity and it will distinguish them from Atlantic Liquors. We have had a couple different people express interest in the new space. It'd be nice to have a cheese shop, you know, so people van/ct wine and t;hene all in one stop." The wine selection at Atlantic Liquors is one area that will be greatly expanded. "We are going to be much more organized, and now we will have the chance to _expand our foreign selection." Lomas said. "Right now we have primarily California wines. We are going to expand all the selections: Spanish, Aus- tralian, French, Chilean." Atlantic Liquors already has one of the biggest selections of spirits and beers in the Cape re- gion and that will remain the same. "We just needed a little more room," Lomas said.
