Chamber cuts ribbon for Dunwoody Beverage

DUNWOODY, Ga. -- A crowd of locals gathered around Dunwoody Beverage, the city's newest business, as its owners and several members of the Chamber of Commerce cut the ribbon to mark its opening on Dec. 15.

"We're delighted the Dunwoody Chamber of Commerce joined our celebration. Our dream of launching this business has come true, and we were honored to have our neighbors at the ribbon-cutting ceremony," said Ketan and Tanuj Patel, owners of Dunwoody Beverage.

The new store uses state-of-the-art technology to stock various liquors at optimal temperatures and provide detailed information for customers. This technology also helps prevent store employees from selling alcohol to underage and intoxicated visitors.

Dunwoody Beverage is located at 1418 Dunwoody Village Parkway. It is open seven days a week.
