For the past 50 years, Kingstown Liquor Mart has been a staple in the North Kingstown community. A family owned and operated venture from the very beginning, the business has consistently thrived and grown as a destination liquor store with emphasis on customer service and value. In 2010, Kingstown Liquor Mart made a massive expansion into the current retail location. In the new state-of-the-art facility, Kingstown Liquor Mart is ready for the demands and needs of the liquor industry of the 21st century.
Both Veterans of World War II, brothers Nick and Ralph Fede envisioned their own slice of the American Dream when they opened their first package store on Benefit Street in Providence in 1952. Seeing the opportunity to be a retailer in their own neighborhood, the brothers relocated to Union Avenue in the Silver Lake section of Providence soon thereafter. In 1962, noting increased population in the area, the brothers opened Kingstown Liquor Mart in North Kingstown, RI. After years of success, Ralph’s sons, Frank and Nick, joined as partners in 1983. For the past 30-plus years, the two have grown as retailers, eventually turning Kingstown Liquor Mart into one of the top stores in all of Rhode Island. As the third-generation of Fede’s begin to become more involved in the business, one can only look forward to what will be in store for Kingstown Liquor Mart in the coming years.
