Central Avenue Liquors is an independent, locally owned business, managed by a husband and wife team from Northeast Minneapolis. We value integrity, believe that focusing on our community and acting locally builds a stronger community. What we value is prominently displayed on our central avenue awnings.

Our History

Central Avenue Liquors has been on the avenue since the early 1980’s. Through a series of unlikely, unexpected events, we purchased the business and the building in 2008. The subsequent years brought new business systems, new roof, boilers, windows, etc. In 2013 we converted old storage space to a new beer room boasting a new 15 door craft beer cooler. In 2017 we installed new counters and a large reach in cooler to continue to expand our product offerings. The expansions have made us the largest Northeast owned liquor store/beer shop. In 2020 we began offering delivery to our neighborhood customers. We had no idea how important this service would become to our customers just two months after we started offering it. We are proud to continue to grow and expand, always aiming to serve our customers better.
