Centennial in Big Trouble: Huge 3-Day Booze Sale

Bradford Pearson and I have been following the long, slow demise of Centennial Beverage Group. The company which operates Big Daddy’s, Majestic Beer and Wine, and Fat Dog Beer and wine was smacked with a $4,756,702 tax lien last April and they have appeared on the dreaded TABC Delinquent List too many times to count. They started closing stores in November and I’ve heard from several readers who reported the shelves in most of the Centennial stores are bare.

This morning comes an email from Centennial spokesman Tony Miller:

Warehouse Moving Sale – 2 Days Only

Is “moving warehouses” code for closing? I don’t know but what a great deal for those of us throwing Christmas parties.
