Now in its third season at the Jersey Shore, Gleeson’s Discount Liquors of Seaville has become a force to be reckoned with in quality selection at a great value. Tom Gleeson, Sr. has made a name for himself as a talented custom contractor out of Sea Isle City. His wife Mary Jane has also achieved career success as a partner in Sea Winds Realty. Together, they decided to embark upon an entirely new business venture. Tom and Mary Jane Gleeson opened the doors of Gleeson’s Discount Liquors on June 11, 2010 in hopes to provide the Cape May County community with excellent customer service and even better prices. Their son Tom, Jr. and daughters Megan and JoJo and JoJo’s husband Brad are also actively engaged in the day-to-day operation of the family business and continue to expand the Gleeson’s market and reach.
At the start of this summer season, Gleeson’s did as much as possible to ensure an even higher level of customer satisfaction in their 2012 business year. Gleeson’s, while a private smaller business, has lowered its price levels to compete with larger chain stores. Gleeson’s strives to offer an increasingly wider selection of wine, liquor, and beer. All brew-lovers, be sure to check out their newly expanded and impressively vast craft beer selection including Lindemans, Victory, Rogue, Magic Hat, and Samuel Smiths just to name a few. They also offer a large number of imports from around the world including Peroni, Sapporo, Boddington, and Smithwick.While world-wide representation in their cool refrigerators remains a priority, the Gleeson family also feels that it is important to support the unique breweries close to home. From Flying Fish from Cherry Hill, to Beach Haus from Point Pleasant, to Yards from the city of brotherly love, whatever your beer pleasure may be, you can certainly find it at Gleeson’s.
In order to help expand patrons’ palates, Gleeson’s hosts as many wine, liquor, and beer tastings as possible. Stop by on a Thursday, Friday, or Saturday and say hello to Megan, JoJo, or Brad as they serve up the latest in Gleeson’s products. The Gleeson family invites the distribution companies to host the tastings themselves in order to ensure that customers receive the best information and guidance in the products they sample. Flying Fish Brewery just recently served up tastes of their local brew at the Gleeson’s store location.
Absolutely paramount on the Gleeson family’s list of priorities is customer satisfaction. For this reason, Gleeson’s welcomes all and any customer feedback. The thoughts and wishes of their local customers remain very important to them and they thank these local customers for their year-round patronage. For this reason, when deciding on new summer 2012 products, Gleeson’s went to the customers themselves. This direct dialogue with patrons makes for superb customer service. The Gleeson family is also sure to carefully taste each prospective product they supply. Only after careful deliberation and selection do they proudly present their latest and greatest beers, wines, and liquors. New this season, the gluten-free and Hawaiian imported Ocean Vodka was discovered by owner Tom Gleeson on a recent vacation to Maui. While most vodka originates in colder climates of Russia, Poland, and Scandinavian countries, Ocean is made directly on the island. As far as quality and smoothness, Ocean, says Tom, trumps all others. Other carefully selected new products that hit the Gleeson’s shelves this season include Three Olives S’mores Vodka, Beach Bar Rum (The Spirit of Aloha), Southern Comfort Black Cherry, and Menage À Trois Pinot Grigio. For the best service and most unique choices, Tom, Mary Jane, Tom, Jr., Megan, JoJo, and Brad invite you to make Gleeson’s your next liquor store destination.
