The newest business to open its doors in Olivette is Arena Liquor, which opened in the Olivette Center shopping plaza next to Party City on Wednesday.
Workers were still hanging "Now Open" banners in the front window and lugging ladders around under the high ceilings of the new retailer when Patch visited to check in early Wednesday afternoon.
"We just opened a couple of hours ago," said co-owner Mukesh Shah. "This is all new to us, opening in this location."
He said for now, the store at 9612A Olive Blvd., will have hours of 10 a.m. to 10 p.m., but that they were experimenting a little. The hours of the local chain's main store on Hampton Avenue in Dogtown are 10 a.m. to midnight.
Arena also has locations in Hazelwood and Columbia, MO.
