Kathy Dame and her late husband, Rod, opened for business in 1972 with a very small inventory. Rod was helped by his brother, a silent partner in the business, who gave them $4,000 to get started.
Bob Belcher, a local liquor and wine salesman who now has nearly 50 years of experience in the industry, has been a major factor in Dame’s success throughout the years. Belcher and another local salesperson helped Kathy and Rod stock up their shelves for their grand opening.
This kind of honest and kind-hearted spirit that started Dame’s is a huge part of why they’re still so successful; not to mention every employee is seen as family and the group works together like a well-oiled machine.
Dame’s Discount Liquor & Wine is located right on Route 3 at the entrance of the Lowe’s Plaza next to Viking Ski & Cycle.
An easy to find, easy to get to location, Dame’s has an entrance that faces the Price Chopper parking lot - a short step from grabbing your groceries to grabbing your wine, without having to drive around.
