Franklin Liquors: Happy 237th Birthday Franklin MA! One Day Wine Sale 3/1/15

From Mark Lenzi at Franklin Liquors

Back in February 1978 after a “small” snow storm our dad purchased Jimmies Package store. For those of you not familiar with it or its location it was historic in town. One half was a liquor store the other a tobacco/penny candy/soda fountain AND both sides connected. Located in the center of town looking there now you would never know it existed. There is an empty lot before the railroad bridge left of HR Block and across from The Rome Restaurant.

When it came time to change the name there was none better than FRANKLIN Liquors. Our whole family has deep roots in Franklin, gradates of the schools and all still living in the town today. As a child I can remember walking from Davis Thayer School To CCD at St Mary’s BUT having to stop for candy first.

In 1986 we relocated the store, one of many changes in the town over the years due to growth. We are proud to be family owned and Franklin residents!
