What the store lacks in overall appearance (kind of dusty, grungy) it more than makes up for it in selection.

As stated above, the place doesn't retain it's customers by way of shiny floors and comfortable lighting - but what the heck, its a liquor store.

Selection is great, it's only rival in town being Wilbur's give or take on a week-to-week basis.

Service is rather non-existent, just the way I like it (nine times out of ten, anyhow).

The store sits just outside city limits, so they don't have to charge the city's sales tax. It's not gonna make a huge difference in the short run, but I suppose that a loyal patron would see some payoff over time.

All that said, this is my preferred shopping location in town.

To all those complaining about location, that is intentional. The Ft. Collins county line ends at Laporte, and placing Supermarket Liquors just over this line eliminates a portion of the tax that you would pay at any liquor stores in town. That being said, their quality and prices are fantastic. Don't go there looking for anything ridiculously obscure, but their selection is phenomenal. If I can't find something anywhere else, Supermarket is always my go-to.

Great store, just not as conveniently located for me as I'd like. Not the biggest selection of refrigerated sixers, some are room temp on the shelves, but a great bomber and special bottles selection. One of those stores that can carry some great beers on the shelves after the bigger stores have long since sold old. Service is solid, offering assistance and taking the time to go find out if a particular bottle you might be seeking out might be in the back. Value is reasonable and on par with the going rate it does seem.

Supermarket is incredible. The best part about that store is the service, Most employees seem to have tried everything in there and know whats available. Other employees don't know a lot but are always willing to help. The selection is great. Everytime I shop there they have new beers that I have never heard of. Their beer aisle runs the length of the store and the rare bomber section is almost as long - with really tall shelves. The store is dated but the prices are great so its worth checking out. The best aspect for beer geeks is they offer ten percent off a case of bombers.

This store is a gem. A bit cramped for space but a little paradise of rarer brews that doesn't get swallowed up in the crowds at the larger stores. Very good values and outside of the city limit for sales tax. Their aisle for craft beer reaches from the front to the back flanked with coolers and a cold mix-6 selection in front as well as clearance items. Some bottles in the back get a bit dusty at times and they might overprice a buck here and there for a bottle or two but at the end of the day the reliable selection here exceeds anywhere else in the fort.

Went to this place on my way out of Fort Collins to stock up on some beers I cannot get locally. Very good beer selection from some of the top breweries across the US and Europe. The employees will help you find what you need and suggest new things to try as they are very knowledgeable. If you are very nice and know what to ask for, they might even find you something in the back. They will sometimes offer a 10% discount if you get 12 or more bombers. Was a little disappointed by the selection of local beers (New Belgium, Odell, Funkwerks, Crooked Stave, etc...). I assumed that most of the local breweries would provide a good spread, but it turns out that the brewery is probably the best place to get the good stuff.
