Did you know you can pick up a large 1.75-liter bottle of the world's finest vodka, Grey Goose, for only $49.99 at Rebsamen? True. Good luck finding any of our competitors who will beat that price! Why do we keep our prices so low at Rebsamen, even on top-quality items like Grey Goose? For you, the customer... and so we can get your business!
In case you weren't aware, this is the coolest August that Arkansas has had since 1948. Not complaining here! But it's just a little disorienting for Arkansans to spend the hottest part of the hottest month of the year dry, comfortable, and maybe even wearing pants. What to do?
How about seeing this fall-like weather and raising it by boldly wagering on beverages from Rebsamen Liquor that would generally seem to be a better lifestyle fit later in the season? I'm thinking hearty IPAs, stiff cognacs, and if you're really feeling icy, hot toddies. I don't know, down is up, up is down; it seems to make sense to me.
If you stop by the store, you might notice a new person behind the counter. Don't be alarmed! Believe it or not, even at our store, where the same two brothers worked for decades, sometimes people move onto new projects. Fortunately, we have been lucky in finding great new people to step in and work hard in providing our customers with great service and selection.
So if you see someone you don't recognize, just say hi. We'd love to meet you! After all, you're the reason we're here.
Our beloved manager Lionel is heading for new projects, so we're looking for a new manager. You can't really replace someone of Lionel's character and work ethic, but we've got to try! We're looking for someone who is honest, hard-working, and looking to stick somewhere for the long-term. If you or someone you know would be interested in the freedom and creativity of leading a thriving small business, a low-key work environment, flexible hours, competitive pay, and family ownership, please contact Katherine at (501) 907-9070. More details are in the job description, available for download below.
Here's some news for you: We installed some new flooring. It's only in part of the store. This is perhaps not the most exciting update we've ever provided, but we wanted to keep you apprised nonetheless. We are always trying to make the store as great as it can be for our valued customers. Note that the picture does not show our actual new flooring.
When Copping Arkansas Liquor came under new ownership in 2014, the new owners kept some things just as they had always been -- friendly service, family values, fair prices, and a classic look -- and changed some other things. One of the things that inevitably changed was the name. The new owners felt the Copping name should be preserved with the version of the store as it was owned by the Copping brothers, with the new owners forging their own legacy.
Rebsamen was an easy choice for the new name. The store is located on Rebsamen Park Drive near Rebsamen Park, and our neighborhood clients are all familiar with the word. (We know you're not from around here if you call it Reb-SAH-men or use some other weird pronunciation.)
The story of how the street and park got named Rebsamen is interesting. Raymond Rebsamen was a true jack-of-all-trades: a soldier who served in both World Wars, a cattle rancher, owner of the local Ford dealership, first chairman of Metroplan, and founder of Rebsamen Insurance. Rebsamen Insurance, with headquarters just around the corner from where Rebsamen Liquor is now, became one of the largest independent insurance companies in the country before it was bought by Regions in 2001. Raymond Rebsamen was a generous philanthropist, donating much of the land for both the Little Rock Air Force Base and UALR, making a foundational gift to Rebsamen Golf Course, and giving a sculpture of Icarus and Daedalus to Little Rock that is currently located at -- you guessed it -- Rebsamen Plaza near the main library downtown. UALR named its primary campus for him in 2008.
While Raymond Rebsamen didn't have any personal connection to our little store, he was a major contributor to the development of Little Rock and especially our neighborhood, to the point that some people call it the Rebsamen neighborhood. We didn't exactly name our store for Raymond Rebsamen, but it seems like he's a pretty good namesake all the same.
Hope everyone's having a great first day of spring. The weather is nice, spring break is here (for better or worse), and everyone seems to have a little pep in their step. That goes double for your friendly friends here at Rebsamen. We love spring. The door is open more (at least until pollen sets in), our heavy winter hats give way to handsome haircuts, and best of all, we have great spring deals to reward and entice our loyal customers. Come in soon and see why spring is one of the best times of year at Rebsamen.
Seems like everybody's dabbling in the wine business these days. But there's no substitute for the selection, customer service, and low prices that you get at a full-service liquor store like Rebsamen. We have been doing this for decades. We know which wines present good quality and value, and that's what we stock. If you want our opinion, we're happy to give it. And we'll beat or compete with any other wine seller out there when it comes to price... even Walmart.
We've been in the wine business a long time, and we're here to stay. Come by Rebsamen soon and see why there's no better place to get wine than here.
Ah, Valentine's Day is here again. What to give your husband, wife, boyfriend, girlfriend, or other special person? Flowers are expensive and overrated. Chocolates are just an unwelcome temptation. A card isn't quite enough. What about a nice bottle of wine or Champagne from Rebsamen? It's something that you know will be appreciated, whether it's for an evening at home or a future special occasion. We'll even put a nice bow on it for you.
So, we've got your gift covered this Valentine's Day. The rest is up to you.
