Well, here’s what we’re doing at
FranksWine on North Union Street:

We want to extend our sincerest appreciation and gratitude to the healthcare workers (nurses, physicians, techs, lab staff, pharmacists, environmental workers and everyone else supporting our local hospitals, outpatient facilities and public health systems) in putting their best efforts forward to ensure that our community is taken care of. I speak for everyone in saying that we respect you and we honor you. To show our gratitude FranksWine is offering a
discount to all healthcare professionals:
19% Off Wine & Champagne
9% Off Beer & Spirits

I want to raise a glass to all of our industry friends in the bar, restaurant and catering business who are suffering dearly during this pandemic. Here’s one way to support them which I posted on the FranksWine Instagram account. I hope you’ll consider this wonderful gesture to your favorite restaurant. They need your business more than ever. And ask if they offer delivery to your home or even a meal prep service while you’re juggling your day-to-day life and now you’re school-aged kids are home for the next 2+ weeks. Your local restaurants have their walk-in refrigerators stocked with food… meanwhile, your local grocery store’s shelves are empty. We need to utilize those resources!
Bring in your Gift Card receipt from any restaurant dated March 23rd or later
into FranksWine and

9% OFF Beer & Spirits

It’s Wedding Season and we have a lot of consultation appointments lined up. We’ll be here for you and walk the shop and taste you on product as usual. Or if you are not comfortable with that scenario we can reschedule at a later date or
FaceTime YOUR APPOINTMENT as we walk the shop showing you our selection of brands for you to choose. Also, we understand the climate of uncertainty and possibility of unfortunate postponements, so effective immediately we will WAIVE ALL DEPOSITS but will hold your order and prices until your big day. If manageable your caterer would appreciate an extra payment to them before it’s due… it’s been horrific for the catering industry. Ask them if they are doing meal prep and order it up… I bet they’ll even deliver to your home you for free!

As a further precaution for the safety of the FranksWine Crew and our customers effective immediately we will
Respect Social Distancing by no longer entertaining in-shop sales meetings by our weekly local reps, visiting winemakers or out-of-town suppliers until further notice. Besides the scheduled FranksWine Crew and customers the only other persons that will be at the shop are the delivery drivers to drop off product.

What else are we doing?
You know that we always keep the shop spic-n-span but during any downtime we are prioritizing disinfecting and sanitizing all counter surfaces, shopping carts and baskets, credit card terminals, door handles, walk-in cooler door handles, reach-in cooler door handles, Growler Bar, Wine Tasting Stations, glassware, cutting boards, utensils, floors, doors, windows and restroom facilities. We are fully stocked with TP, but please refrain from removing it from our premises or you may end up like the infamous AssClown.
During this time of unchartered territory and uncertainty the safety and comfort of my staff and customers is my number one priority. I’m not going to list the common sense bullet points of how-to’s that you’ve all read a hundred times since over the weekend, rather I’m going to invite you to my shop for a pleasant experience, cool atmosphere, great music, stellar section and passionate Crew. We’ll continue to do in-shop tastings of wine, beer and spirits… we all need a little nip these days to keep sane, so please come on in!
Be safe, drink a lot of Champagne, eat good cheese (big delivery of DiBruno Bros cheeses, charcuterie, spreads, flatbreads and crostini arriving fresh
from South Philly weekly!)
