“Dear PoPville,

Wonder if you know what is going on with AM Wine Shoppe on 18th and Wyoming? Their inventory of both wines and meats/cheeses has been dwindling in the past few months – I can’t help but think that they are preparing to close. They serve some really good sandwiches, but I’m wondering if the competition from De Vinos, Glens and others has finally got to them? When I asked an employee yesterday he just said they weren’t putting a lot of $ into merch right now since the summer has been quiet.”

A spokeswoman for the Wine Shoppe says this is normal and all is well:

“The Shoppe usually is slim in August since the owner and wine buyer vacation the last two weeks, which coincides with a dip in customer traffic due to August vacations. The Shoppe will be stocking the shelves this week in order to get back to “par.”
