I was having a conversation about Quincy when someone mentioned that Quincy at one time had more bars per capita than any other city in America. I am not sure it is a true statement. I had also heard the "bar on every corner" comment many times before as well. There does seem to be quite a few bars in this town for it's size and that maybe why there are so few liquor stores in Quincy.

Other than the grocery and convenience stores I can only think of two liquor stores in Quincy, the Hy-Vee Wine and Spirits store and the Wine on Broadway store. When I first moved to Quincy there were multiple Berry Liquor Stores in the city.

I believe there were four Berry Liquor Stores, perhaps five. I believe one was at 30th and Broadway and another was at 18th and Harrison.  I am not sure where the others were located. Do you remember?
