Toms River: Since the summer there has been construction on the old Sabrett Hot Dog building on NJ 37 near the corner of Coolidge. The building was gutted, and a new facade was put on the exterior. Months of speculation have brought us all to assume it was a new liquor store, but the signs officially went up today.

EZ Beer, Wine & Liquors had staff stocking the shelves today, and the parking lot was filled with people getting the store ready. By the looks of things, they should be ready to open in two to three weeks. Of course liquor stores need a whole different set of permits and inspections which may delay the opening. As we hear more, we will keep all our liquor-loving fans updated!
