It's only a hair past 3 p.m., but John Wolf has already put in a full day's work. "We're loading about 10,000 cases in tomorrow for the new store," he explains. "I've been up since 4 in the morning."
It may seem like insanity. But Wolf, the grandson of grocery store magnate Arthur Applebaum, knows it's all part of the game.
After buying Chicago Lake Liquors in 2000, Wolf opened Liquor Boy in St. Louis Park last week. Part wine and spirits, part warehouse, it's a concept that looks toward the future, has roots in the past, and is anything but ordinary. Just like its owner.
A ex-sports agent for high-profile personalities like Jim McMahon and Deion Sanders, Wolf shares many traits with his former clients. Intense focus. Dogged determination. Constant pursuit of the next challenge. And the gargantuan 10,000-square-foot Liquor Boy is his largest undertaking yet--an ambitious project that contains a few threads from the old family business.
