The storm left their basement and store flooded, destroyed electric wiring and caused at least $150,000 in damage to their wine and liquor inventory, said Manager Brandy Rounds.
“It was enough to displace us,” said Rounds, adding that they lost money in having to sell some of the bottles at lower prices.
After five months of renovation, Dry Dock moved back to their store at 424 Van Brunt St., where they have been housed for three years. During the construction period, Dry Dock had moved to another neighborhood location but reopened at their original store on April 18.
To celebrate their reopening, Dry Dock is hosting a comeback sale, with discounted wine and liquor prices till April 30, as a way to thank the community for their support after Sandy, said Rounds. The spirits store will also be bringing back their weekend wine and liquor tastings.
In March, Red Hook Winery also reopened their doors after Hurricane Sandy caused about $1 million to $2 million worth of destruction to the winery, including damage to the building, bottles, casks and wine-making equipment.
