Tryon ABC store back in business

She said the main part of her decision was getting to stay in the area that she loves. She’s involved with horses and other area activities here and wants the décor of the store to reflect Tryon’s unique history. She asks that anyone with photographs or posters of equestrian life here, the theatre, arts or music feel free to bring them in the store for her to display.

Tryon’s ABC store has been closed since last September and is re-opening with a $30,000 loan obtained by the store. The store has already regained its Tryon restaurant customers who were being served by the Columbus ABC store temporarily. Along with the store’s new hours, the store will concentrate mainly on selling spirits. Kurzynski said Tryon does not want to compete with what other local merchants are selling such as beer and wine. Along with Kurzynski working full-time, plans are to hire a part-time employee as well.

“I’m so excited,” Kurzynski said. “I just feel like we can make this store a gem in town. I want it to succeed.”
