Philly’s legendary Di Bruno Bros. began in the Italian Market once more in 1939, and subsequent month the company will open its newest enterprise, a beer-and-wine bottle shop, only some storefronts down.
The shop, to be opened at 930 S. Ninth St., will possibly be known as Ninth Street Bottle Shop and might initially open as a “pop-up”, primarily based on Eater. The plan, primarily based on Di Bruno Bros. President & CEO Bill Mignucci Jr., is to open the first week of October and supply bottles of craft beer and wine, along with a short meals menu.
By 2020, Mignucci instructed Eater, the bottle shop will possible be was an eternal shop, which the company will view as a smaller mannequin of the Alimentari it merely opened on the second floor of its Center City retailer.
Di Bruno Bros. has owned the setting up on the nook since sooner than the flip of the millennium, and used it as a storefront for the company’s Pronto mannequin for eight years, from 2000 to 2008, per Eater.
The location seems to be a pure match: there is a vital scarcity of wine retailers in the Italian Market, which could seem like clear missed various. Outside of a run-of-the-mill Fine Wine & Good Spirits on the alternative side of Broad Street, and a bottle shop loads of extra south on East Passyunk Avenue, the neighborhood recognized for its Italian delicacies is almost a wine desert.
Unsurprisingly, Mignucci instructed Eater he noticed the dearth of wine-buying decisions as a first-rate various for a Di Bruno Bros. enlargement.
Di Bruno Bros. at current has quite a lot of areas all by way of the city: outside of the Italian Market, they’ve storefronts in Center City, Washington Square West, Ardmore, and the Comcast Center.
