New Liquor Store Coming to East Windsor

The 14-store chain looks to expand with Route 130 location.

A new liquor store will be opening in East Windsor this fall, in the former Randall’s Furniture location on Route 130.

Owners of Bottle King hope to open the doors in September, but a date has not yet been set, according to Andreas Kertesz, a company representative.

The business will sell wine, liquor, beer and dry goods, including chips and snack food, but will not carry refrigerated food, Kertesz said.

Bottle King has 14 other New Jersey locations, mainly in the northern part of the state, and the company wanted to expand to the East Windsor-area, Kertesz said. 

“It’s a market we wanted to get into. It seems like a very up and coming area and we wanted to come down a bit further south,” he said. 

Kertesz said the company plans to hire local employees and will advertise positions at a later date.

“We’re excited about opening,” he said.

Great Potential, based on your response to Jorge's comment, it's obvious you have some deep issues. I suggest you try harder to live up to your screenname.

With all the DUI's handed out in this town and the way people drive around here I don't think another liqour store is the answer, whether you're looking for a discount or not. I think 4 liquor stores within a 2 mile radius is way too much!! Do you think someone from another town is going to drive to East Windsor just because we have Bottle King?? Don't fool yourself. Shame on whoever made this decision, sure we'll see at the ribbon cutting ceromony. Dislike!!

Well I for one think it's a smart idea! The economy sucks and I know people who need jobs. My sister for one! I do know a kid who worked for BottleKing while he was in college in New Jersey. Supposedly the pay is pretty good and they even get insurance. As for the traffic, East Windsor has made the decision to allow another chain store in town. They do it knowing the pros and cons and I am guessing they think BottleKing will be a pro! Lastly if you think that people do not come from other towns to go to a chain store like BottleKing, Home Depot, bed bath beyond etc. then you are silly. of course they do. Not only do they have the best prices because of the quantity they sell, but you will save gas from driving to the next town to one of the stores rather than going from store to store to store to store to find all of the things that you would find under one mass roof!

Just saying… Enough bitterness here and good luck to all the new stores small and big coming to East Windsor. Give us jobs pay your taxes and it's a win-win situation for all!!!!!!

I'm with you Lisa, there was no problem getting in and out of the previous furniture store. Makes my trips shorter too.
