Sid's Crown Liquor Store To Close

March 20, 2014, 12:10 PM by Angela Kennecke

Sid's Crown Liquor Store To Close

A downtown Sioux Falls fixture is closing its doors. 

Sid's Crown Liquor at 330 S. 1st Avenue will close within the next two weeks for good. Sid Epstein started the business in 1947. Epstein died in 2009 at the age of 95.

His son-in-law Paul Damyan says sales have declined by a million dollars since the so called "Hy-Vee Bill" was passed by the legislature in 2008. House Bill 1142 passed to allow grocery and big box stores with multiple locations to hold more than three liquor licenses.

Damyan says Sid's lost money last year and every time a new store that sells alcohol comes to town, Sid's takes a hit.

Sid's is selling off its inventory and will close within two weeks. 

Damyan says he's gotten a lot of interest from people who want to buy the Sid's Crown Liquor neon sign. But he hasn't decided what will happen to the sign yet.
