Buehler’s Fresh Foods Announces Opening of Massillon Liquor Agency

Buehler’s Fresh Foods in Massillon, Ohio, announces the official opening of the Massillon Liquor Agency, adjacent to the supermarket, on April 4, 2019. The Massillon Liquor Agency will be the first store in Ohio to fully implement the new Ohio Liquor OHLQ brand developed by the Ohio Department of Commerce Division of Liquor Control. The OHLQ brand is a system of core design elements that combine to create a distinctive look and feel that was chosen to replace generic “State Liquor” branding that is currently used in most Ohio agencies.

Dan Shanahan, CEO and President of Buehler’s Fresh Foods stated, “We find the Ohio Division of Liquor Control to be a terrific partner and are very impressed with their vision and execution. Under Jim Canepa’s leadership the Division is fixing problems, branding for the future and growing again. We are happy to be part of it.”

Ron James, Buehler’s Director of Beer, Wine and Liquor added, “We are proud to offer our customers the convenience of one-stop shopping and have strived to respect customers’ considerations by offering two entrances into the agency; one from inside the Buehler store and another directly from the parking lot.”

Lindsey Leberth, Brand Manager for the Ohio Department of Commerce added, “While the look is a big focus of the brand, it’s also about the feel. We want consumers to feel supported in their shopping experiences with educated and helpful staff willing to assist. We’re adding a level of sophistication to our locations.”

Buehler’s Massillon has a strong beer and wine offering with over 500 beers and 1,000 wines available daily. There is a 10% discount on wine case purchases and liquor agency customers may use their credit or debit cards. Buehler’s Massillon Liquor Agency hours will be Monday through Saturday, 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. and closed on Sundays.

“The Massillon Team is excited to bringing this opportunity to our store. We look forward to introducing a new service and meeting new customers.” added Ben Sigler, Store Manager, Buehler’s Fresh Foods in Massillon.
