Where is the Best Place for Liquor, Wine, Beer in Milford?

The Readers' Choice this week is your favorite beer, wine, or liquor store.

Most supermarkets can't sell beer, wine or liquor, so for those adult beverages, we turn to independent markets and shops.

Milford has several stores that sell wine, beer, liquor, or all three. Choose among the following and pick your favorite.
And don't forget to post a review of the business on the Patch Directory.

Voting in the poll below is open until 9 a.m. Friday.

Because this poll is not scientific, it is not the sole consideration in choosing a winner. The winner will be determined by the Patch editor, based on poll results and reviews posted this week on the Patch Directory. Please vote only once per survey, per Patch. The official rules go into greater detail (Editor's Note: see attached PDF).

In the event of a tie, the editor will choose based on the highest combined number of positive reviews (on the business listing in Patch Places) and comments. We will announce the winner at noon Friday.

So tell us where you go for beer, wine or spirits. And don't forget to tell us in the comments below why this is your favorite place.

Hickey's has a great selection and excellent customer service. Everyone in the store is friendly, knowledgeable, and are a pleasure to see. The new location looks great, and I plan on supporting their business for a long time.

Another vote for Hickey's - I've been a customer of Charlie's since the days of the "small" store in the Stop & Shop plaza...

I used to be a Hickey's customer 100%, but now I might be down to 5%. I go to JP's Liquors all the time now.. I love how Jessi keeps us informed on what is new on the shelf for us to try. I always feel welcome at JP's. With all the choices out there and prices being close enough, JP's give me that special welcome, which will always bring me back in again!

Have to go with Hickey's. I'm sure the people at JP's are nice, but they have such a limited selection and inventory. I always know that Hickey's I'll find what I am looking for.

Hickey's is my go to for liquor in town. Best selection of whiskey, scotch, and specialty beers anywhere and a huge wine selection to boot.

This has been an incredible poll being toe to toe with Hickey's. As most know JP's is very small in comparison to Hickey's, therefore our inventory is limited but we try are hardest to satisfy our customers needs who we very grateful for, they are awesome! It has been great watching this poll and being in competition with such a huge, great store such as Hickey's. Thanks again for everyone who has been voting & keep them coming!

Nice job JP's.. not a bad score against a long time resident - Hickey's! 200 votes to their 210 votes.. Well done! You have made your mark in Milford in record time. I will be in soon!

Assuming this is true.. doesn't really matter to me. Hickey's is still my store of choice.
Mary MacDonald (Editor) May 20, 2012 at 11:36 AM
I agree, Myd. It is irrelevant and some kind of a personal attack, which is why I deleted it the first time it appeared, and have now deleted it for a second time and suspended the user. This should go without saying, but don't use the site to post personal attacks on individuals or businesses.
