J’s Liquors has been serving the Owensboro area since 1955, when John ”Hump” Tanner and local surgeon Doc Oldham joined resources to open the store at 2055 Triplett (just north of the existing location). Hump was a Owensboro High School and Centre College football star who was the starting quarterback for Centre in 1921 when they defeated the then powerhouse of college football, Harvard College. Townspeople affectionately named the store “Hump’s” after this local star who went on to play professional football for nearly 3 years.
After several years, Doc Oldham bought the remaining shares of the business from Hump and re-named the store “Doc’s Liquors”. J’s is now on its third name and third building, although we have kept the same great location and been family owned since the beginning. We believe in constantly evolving to meet the changing needs of our customers.
Great service, a convenient location, drive thru window, and a large inventory of quality products have been the standards that our customers have come to depend on over the years. J’s commitment to excellent service and selection has lead us to offer an emphasis on low pricing and value added services such as our Thursday and Saturday afternoon wine tastings, cheese shop, custom made gift baskets, imported cigars and party planning services. Our ever popular fresh made cheese balls and spreads are an Owensboro favorite. We are proud to claim the largest selection of fine wines, name brand liquors and domestic and imported beers in the Owensboro area, all at affordable prices. J's Liquors is a proud member of "The Owensboro Bourbon Society". Click the Facebook Logo and join us on FACEBOOK.
