Opening this week in Red Boiling Springs is Macon County’s first liquor store, RBS Wine and Liquor, located at 711 Lafayette Road.

The store officially opened at 10 a.m. on Monday morning, November 20, with a ribbon cutting ceremony attended by Red Boiling Springs Mayor Joel Coe. Manager Mr. Mikey Patel, invites everyone to visit the new business and check out the selection of wines, liquors, and beer.

“Everything in the store is ten percent off during the week of the grand opening,” said Mr. Patel. “Plus, we are just a ten minute drive from Lafayette, Hermitage Springs and Gamaliel, Kentucky.”
The holiday store hours are Monday through Saturday, 9 a.m. till 10 p.m. and beginning on January 1, 2018, the hours will be from 9 a.m. till 9 p.m. The store is closed on Sunday.
Other store employees are Shelly King, Chris York, and Lauren Harris. Mr. Ravi Patel is the business owner.
RBS Wine and Liquor will be closed on Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years’s Day.
Absolutely no one under 21-years-old can enter the store.
“I’m trying to encourage the growth and tourism here in RBS, and I think this store is just what we need,” said Mayor Joel Coe. “There are several positive things about the liquor store including more tax revenue, which the city desperately needs. I know this business will be an asset to Red Boiling Springs.”
