Frequently Asked Questions
1. Do you have store for sale or sites available?
Liquor City does not procure and sell retail stores, but we do assist all our members with opening their stores. We will however, require you to have a new, viable site or an existing store that you would like to convert to Liquor City. Our experienced team will facilitate the store opening or change and we will assist you with approved vendors to get the job done.
2. Do I need capital?
Yes, you will need to have capital available. If you require finance, you will need at least 50% of the capital needed to open the store, as this is the requirement from most banks. We have a good relationship with the 4 major banks which can assist the finance process. If you do not require finance, 100% of the capital is required.
3. How much Capital do I need?
It all depends on the unique needs of your store and its size. On average R1.7 million to R2 million is needed to set a new store up from scratch. If you are converting from an existing store, some of the costs incurred are signage, licence changes, uniform and in some case renovations to meet the Liquor City brand standards.
4.What do I do first?
If you have an existing store, please do not hesitate and complete the contact form so that our experienced team can be in touch right away.
If you are opening a new store, we suggest that you start by finding a viable location for your store. Contact us once you have this ready and our experienced team will contact you and walk you through the next steps. Part of this will be a site inspection to assist you with finalising step 1.

Having been in Liquor Retail for a number of years, Liquor City’s founder and chief Manuel De Atouguia decided a radical change was required, not only in the way liquor stores looked but in the manner their customers were treated. He set about building a brand which asked the question “What do South Africans want”.
