I am humbled that Liquor Store has been awarded the title of Menswear Independent of the Year by a prestigious institution such as Drapers. Our loyal customers couldn’t be any more supportive which we are also so grateful for. Birmingham’s thriving independent scene has gone from strength to strength in the past few years and it’s an exciting time to be a part of it.
