The first liquor store in Greenwich, which opened back in 1933, is shutting its doors next month after 86 years of business.

Cos Cob Liquors, LLC, announced on Facebook yesterday that the shop is planning on closing so that current owners, George A. Smith III and Maureen T. Smith, can retire.

"Our family is grateful for the continued patronage of our customers throughout the years," said the Smiths in the Facebook post. "Every dollar each customer spent at our mom-and-pop business helped put a roof over our head, food on our table and assisted with the education of our children."

The store is located at 130 E Putnam Avenue, where it has remained a staple in the community.

The Smith family purchased the business in 1981, 42 years after the liquor store opened at the tail end of the prohibition era, according to the Patch. The family has since tried to sell the business off on multiple occasions but were "sadly unable to do so."
