The Scoop: Lukas Liquor announces new location, name change



Change is in the air at Lukas Liquor; come mid-May, the store will move to a new, larger location at 15678 Manchester Road in Ellisville and will take on a new name: Lukas Wine & Spirits. The new location is less than a half-mile from Lukas Liquor’s current store at 15921 Manchester Road, where it has operated for 15 years.

Owner Gary Bilder said property owners had approached him before about leasing the massive space, a former Best Buy, but he had not decided to move until recently. “We’re simply out of room,” Bilder said “By moving, we’re adding 7,000 more square feet of space to our store. Even our parking lot will be bigger for customers."

Bilder will take 31,000-square-feet of the new space, which will double the size of Lukas’ beer department and dramatically expand the wine department. The new Lukas Wine & Spirits will also have a full cash bar inside the store in case you need refreshment after walking all those extended aisles.
