Longtime Kansas City liquor store chain Berbiglia Wine & Spirits is downsizing. The family-owned operation has shuttered six of its stores and will consolidate at its lone remaining store in south Kansas City.
Ralph Bondon, a partner in the company with his brother Jack, confirmed the company’s plans on Wednesday, but he declined further comment.
The brothers said in an email to customers that they planned to open a superstore with expanded inventory. That news came as a surprise to several store managers, who said they were opening their stores Wednesday when they got the call to shut them down.
