Wine Stores: Bad Boys of Urban Retailing

Many people see wine stores as upscale additions to a neighborhood. We'd like to torpedo that perception right here and now, given the news that (a) Whole Foods apparently is running an illegal wine operation out of its Time Warner Center überstore; and (b) new Avenue A wineshop Discovery Wines appears to be opening with plenty of glitz and glamor?but without a license.
