In Tokyo, There's A Second-Hand Shop For Booze

In Tokyo, There's a Second-Hand Shop for Booze

Across Japan, there is a chain of second-hand shops called Hard Off. There is also a used book retailer known as Book Off. And now, there's also a store specialising in second-hand alcohol called Liquor Off.

Located in Tokyo, Liquor Off wants to buy your unwanted booze. No wonder the shop says "Please sell" in Japanese! Liquor Off will buy all kinds of alcohol, including cans of beer. That's right, you can sell cans of beer.

Liquor Off, however, won't buy your opened or half-finished booze or your experienced cans of beer. Instead, the shop hopes to acquire alcohol people get as gifts or simply never got around to drinking, so it can resell them at a discount. Liquor Off will even buy those little bottles of booze from aeroplanes.

The result is an eclectic second-hand shop, filled with other people's liquor.

酒専門の古物商が巷に増えてきた件 [あのcongiroが、酒と旅と○○を大いに語る!ブログ!Z]


    I..........really want to visit this place now!

      Considering the pure range of alcohol that's part of Japanese society (everything from sake to scotch), safe to assume you can find some pretty good stuff. Definitely on my list when I go again.

    People give booze as gifts all the time. Unless you are allergic, the idea that one simply doesn't drink is met with surprise, confusion, and sometimes derision.

    This is a good idea for those people.

    i have a feeling i'll be going to see this when i go over in november... lol

    The shop's name sounds like a double-entendre to me.
