THE IRVINGS ARE SELLING LIQUOR THESE DAYS!!!! THE END OF A PROUD ERA????
It was the first time I noticed a NB Liquor store in an Irving Gas Station.
I always believe that the Irvings would never allow liquor in their stores.
While in that area, someone told me the reason.
A few years ago, Esso had the license to sell Liquor in that area.
I believe it was on Christmas Eve that a person walked in the store with a gun and ordered everyone out from the store.
He put the building on fire and committed suicide.
The place was burnt down to the ground!!!
Esso had a lot of people going to their store because of the Liquor license so the Irvings had to move fast.
With their Irving lobbyists in Fredericton. They quickly got a license to sell liquor so Esso < competition > wouldn’t rebuild the store.
Without a liquor License? It would be ridiculous to open a new store.
So the Irvings are now selling liquor!
I wonder if today’s Irving Christmas or business parties serve liquor these days?
Is this the end of a proud trend of non-alcoholic beverages in the Irving stores?
Don’t the Irvings know you cannot ride a canoe when you’re drinking????...lol...
The end of a proud era indeed!!!!! K.C. Irving must be turning in his grave!!!
