The wait for the grand opening of the new Paoli State Wine & Spirits Shop appears to have been extended for several more months.
The new store, announced last year, has been delayed until at least mid-summer, according to employees at both the current Paoli State Store location in the Depot Shoppes and the Devon Wine & Spirits Shop.
Employees who spoke to TE Patch say the hang up appears to be the lease at the Paoli Store that will be closed when the new store opens in the strip of stores next to Acme in Paoli. Several different employees who asked not to be named for this article tell TE Patch that the current store's lease runs until August and there have been concerns about leaving the current location too far in advance of that.
Employees at the Devon Store in Devon Village next to Whole Foods say the PLCB has moved preparing their new store ahead of Paoli. As TE Patch reported last week, the new Devon Store is due to open in late May or early June. As of late last week work on the Devon Store in the fomrer Bellini's Furniture building appeared to moving at a much faster pace than rennovation work inside the new Paoli Wine & Spirits Store in the space that once housed a Blockbuster video and the Doggie Style pet grooming store.
