Friar Tuck opening in Forsyth



DECATUR -- A high-end liquor store is on its way to Macon County.  Friar Tuck is under construction  in Forsyth right now.

The store is located in the vacant building next to Red Lobster in front of Hickory Point Mall.

Plans to open the store have been in the works since October 2012.

Village administrator Mike Miller said a resident survey showed a high-end liquor store was in high demand.

He anticipates the store to generate up to $2 million in retail sales.

"I think it diversifies the retail opportunities we have here [in Forsyth]," said Miller.

Additional construction of a sprinkler system has pushed back the store's opening date from mid-July.
