Galion, Ohio-based Buehler’s Fresh Foods plans to open the Galion Liquor Agency in late spring.
The agency will be located in the Galion West Shopping Plaza, one door down from a Buehler’s Fresh Foods grocery store.
“We appreciate the opportunity to continue our investment in Galion and the surrounding communities and look forward to bringing an additional service to our Buehler’s Galion supermarket customers,” said Mike Davidson, CEO and president. “The city of Galion and Crawford County have been very welcoming to us.”
The agency will include an assortment of more than 300 beers and 400 wines. The company will offer a 10 percent discount when customers mix and match six or more wines. They can also use their debit or credit cards.
“We are proud to offer our customers the convenience of one-stop shopping,” said Ron James, Buehler’s director of beer, wine and liquor. “In addition to liquor, we will also offer a selection of snacks, sodas and mixers, glassware, barware and premium cigars.
Buehler’s Fresh Foods was founded in 1929 by E.L. Buehler and his wife, Helen. In 2017, it went through a management buyout and formed an ESOP. Buehler’s operates 14 supermarkets, seven liquor agencies, outside catering, coffee shops and a food truck named Ferris.
“For the second time in the last six months, Buehler’s Fresh Foods has shown confidence in the Galion area with the opening of a State Liquor Agency,” said Tom O’Leary, mayor of Galion.
“Buehler’s fills a key vacancy in the Galion West Shopping Center and is part of making it as vibrant of a shopping location as I can remember.”
