Oasis Liquor Store in Adams Under New Management

ADAMS, Mass. — The Oasis Liquor Store is under new management and the Mazzeo family looks to bring a new face to the package store.  
 
Michael Mazzeo took over the Spring Street store a few months ago because he saw an opportunity to expand  in the area.
 
"I saw a great opportunity and I decided to invest in Adams and with some hard work and some improvement, we are hoping to accomplish that," Mazzeo said.
 
He is familiar with the retail business and before taking over the Oasis, he updated and operated the Greenridge Variety & Liquor in Dalton, and has owned a tanning salon and a barber shop.
 
"I have been in business over 35 years and I tried to get my boys setup," he said. "This is going to run like a family business."
 
Customer service is important to the Mazzeos and Michael's son Daniel said this is what will set Oasis Liquors apart from other similar businesses. 
 
"I think customer service-wise we are more responsive to that," he said. "Our prices are better and we have done this before. This isn't the kind of store where you come in and there is no acknowledgement."
 
His father added that they are happy to make special orders for patrons and will give discounts to those who order by the case.
 
"We welcome the opportunity to provide any special order that any customer requests," Michael Mazzeo said.
 
He added that they now carry a selection of craft beers, micro brews, and quality cigars.
 
The Mazzeos not only brought a new face to the liquor store but want to refresh the property itself.
 
"We brought in more products in new coolers," Daniel Mazzeo said. "We started remodeling and we have more that we want to do."
 
Michael Mazzeo said they plan to expand in the near future.
 
The Mazzeos brought over experienced staff from their former store who are TIPS and Tobacco Awareness certified.
 
"When they found out about our new location they decided to follow and work with us again," Michael said. "Our employees are like part of our family and that is what makes us a great family business."
 
Oasis Liquor is open Monday through Wednesday 9 to 9, Thursday through Saturday 9 to 10, and Sunday 10 to 7.  Check the Facebook page for more information.

Hundreds Hike Mount Greylock During The Ramble

By Jack GuerinoiBerkshires Staff

ADAMS, Mass. — More than 1,000 people took advantage of Monday's mild and sunny weather to make the ascent to the top of the state's highest peak during the annual Greylock Ramble.

ProAdams reports that near 1,200 people registered at the summit of Mount Greylock with more making there way to the top as the day went on.

The oldest hiker again was Caroline Brazeau from North Adams. Brazeau is 90 years old.

The three youngest to reach the summit were all four months old. Although Myles Mancino of Cheshire, and Annalise Stokes and Liam Brown of Adams may have had a little help, they still made it to the top.

David Slick and Lisa Bollinger traveled the farthest to hike Mount Greylock and traveled to Adams from Golden, Colo. 

The Ramble dates back to 1967 and is more recently partnered with a Ramblefest, a party that takes place at the Visitors Center day before.
