Exit 9 Wine & Liquor Warehouse was founded on November 1, 2001 by Mark & Sharon O'Callaghan.

After working for 12 years in the alcohol industry on the wholesale and supplier side, Mark decided to explore the retail side of the business.

With a solid business plan, they were ready to go!

Our first holiday season was a huge success, and we knew we had something special!

We continued to grow and expanded with an additional 2,000 square foot warehouse in 2003. Then, in 2005, we moved our location five store fronts down to an old TJ Maxx store.

This 30,000 square foot store was quite an undertaking, and many in the industry doubted its ability to support itself.

We proved our doubters wrong, and over the next five years, we continued to expand and grow our inventory.

In 2010, an opportunity that was too good to pass up presented itself. We packed our things, and moved across the street to the town of Halfmoon, and an old Linens-N-Things, stand alone, 37,500 square foot building became our new home.

A complete renovation followed, with brand new fixtures; we created our dream store, complete with a temperature-controlled, 4,000 bottle fine wine room and a walk-in cooler for chilled wine.

Now, 10 years later, we continue to grow and better serve our customers.

In the years since we moved to our current location, we've added a classroom for wine and spirits seminars, a fully-functional wine bar for our customers to try some of our newest and favorite wines, and have grown our single barrel selection into one of the best in the Northeast.

Mark & Sharon, and Exit 9 Wine & Liquor Warehouse have been ardent supporters of the local community. Mark sits on numerous area boards, and he and Sharon continue to support local organizations and give back to our community.

As we move into the future, we look forward to servicing our customers continuing to provide the best selection of wine and spirits in the Capital Region!
