A short half year after Jack’s Wine and Spirits opened at Fox Ridge Plaza near 37th and Maize Road, a second Jack’s is opening near K-96 and Ridge Road.

Jack’s Discount Liquor is opening in mid-October at 3931 N. Ridge Road. Jennifer Potter will manage both stores, which are owned by two trusts.

“That’s a very busy road over there on 96,” Potter says.

She says that area is growing just as rapidly as Maize Road with new houses in the area.

“We want to give them a more convenient location,” Potter says.

The first Jack’s is 7,500 square foot. The new one is 5,000 square feet. The floor space will be a little smaller, but it will have the same amount of coolers.

“We’re still going to offer a great selection of products,” Potter says.

She says there are no other Jack’s stores planned.

Potter says she anticipates some crossover between the two stores.

“We’ve had great reception, and our customers are wonderful,” she says. “We’re very grateful to all of them.”
