Martignetti Liquors in Brighton Is Closing

A name in the retail liquor business that has been around for more than 80 years is going away, as it shifts its focus over to wholesale.

According to a Facebook post from food/drinks writer MC Slim JB, Martignetti Liquors in Brighton is shutting down, with a tweet from @ANBunnell indicating that its last day in operation will be Saturday, March 18. The picture within the tweet shows that the closing of the Soldiers Field Road liquor store represents the completion of a transition from retail to wholesale, with Martignetti now focusing on being a wholesale distribution company that covers the New England region.

Martignetti Liquors got its start in Boston's North End in 1933, with the Brighton store opening in 1963. Other retail locations of Martignetti have closed over the years, including ones in the North End and Chelsea. (Martignetti's wholesale business is headquartered in Taunton.)

The address for this soon-to-close liquor store in Brighton is: Martignetti Liquors, 1650 Soldiers Field Road, Brighton, MA, 02135.
