Eastgate Liquors Wilmington, MA location was started in 1971 by entrepreneur John A. Lucci Jr, serving the Wilmington and Reading area with beer, wine and top-shelf liquor at discount prices. The original store which contained 6,000 square feet of retail floor area and an 8 door cooler chest, has since expanded to triple the original retail space and a cooler chest of 31 doors of domestic and imported beers along with an array of seltzer varieties.
The Eastgate Liquors North Reading store opened in 1976 as a sister store of the Wilmington location. Today North Reading's cooler which houses pallets of frosty traditional and microbrewed beers boasts 42 cooler doors and 15 doors of chilled wines.
Easily rated #1 in the area, Eastgate's inventory has grown threefold from the start in 1971 and now draws customers from all surrounding towns, justifying it's claim to having the best selection of beer, wine, and liquor North of Boston.
