New building on Summit Bridge Road at same site as former store which has been demolished

Smith Liquors in Townsend recently moved into a larger building while the old store was torn down on the same property, said Rich Desai, store owner, who leases the property.

The business never closed when it moved from the old 960-square-foot building into the new 4,300-square foot building on July 14. After the move, the old building was demolished to make way for parking.

Desai said the store still carries beer, wine and liquor, but with the larger location the business had added an additional employee.

The address is the same, 5988 Summit Bridge Road, Townsend.
