NEWS AND EVENTS
Then and Now
George’s Liquor has a very storied past. It has had five different owners, three different buildings, and an extremely diverse clientele. From a small business founded in 1972, to the liquor retail powerhouse that it is today, George’s has indeed come a long way. Founded by Mr. George Rasch (the man behind the name of the store), George’s Liquor got its start in downtown Newport on Beech Street. George’s changed owners in 1974 and again in 1978, 1980, and finally to the current owner, Connie Jane Waters, in 1983, who has held the license ever since. George’s moved to its current location, 505 Malcolm Avenue, and was rebuilt in 2005, expanding from a 1,000 square foot store, to a massive 10,000 square foot warehouse, filled with thousands of different brands, sizes, and varieties of beer, wine, and liquor. That selection grows every day! Along with our outstanding patrons, George’s Liquor also serves over 30 private clubs and restaurants across northeast Arkansas. If you are a private club or restaurant seeking wholesale pricing, please give us a call and we will gladly meet with you!
