does this mean that bloomingdale liquors is trying to push an image of being a little nicer than a typical liquor store? could we be seeing the bars and bulletproof plexiglass coming down in favor of something a little more inviting?

I went there a few months ago to buy some cases if beers for a party. They were really helpful in helping me get a good deal and also helping load the boxes into my car. I agree the inside of the place needs grave improvement, but the people behind the glass were friendly and their prices were great.
