Andrew Traughber of Bon Vivant Wines
Gut Check contributor Dave Nelson
passes along word that Bon Vivant Wines
in Columbia, Illinois, is closing its doors after business this Saturday, February 20. Owner Andrew Traughber
is taking a position with Cellar Advisors
, a St. Louis-based wine-cellar consulting firm.
"The opportunity [for this new position] came up," Traughber explained when I spoke to him this morning. "I couldn't pass it up."
Columbia's loss could be your gain, however: Traughber has marked down almost everything in the store by 20% (or more) today through Saturday.Related
