History

In 1959, Stan Borow purchased the cramped, little, one-aisle Northside Liquor store in Ithaca, New York.

Today, thanks in large part to Stan's vision, creativity, and retail ingenuity, Northside is now home to 11,500 square feet of retail showroom, stocking over 6,000 brands and the world's greatest selection of Finger Lakes wine.

Hours of Operation

Northside Wine and Spirits is open 9AM to 9PM Monday-Saturday, and from 12PM to 6PM Sunday.
