Amityville Fine Wine & Liquor
367 Merrick Rd, Amityville, NY 11701
Went into this store today around 1:45p.m. The guy, who is white, at the counter was going through a playlist of music that everyone could hear. All of a sudden a rap song came on and I continuously heard the n- word, approximately 4 times in the song. I went to the guy behind the counter and said, "What are you guys playing?" He said, "Just a cd I'm going through." I said, "I don't think that is a good song to play now." He looked at me like I was crazy! There were 2 other customers in the store that were white and I was the only black person in there. After I paid for my items, the guy that was playing the music just stood there and looked at me like I was crazy while I took my time to put my money back in my wallet. Honestly, I wish I had put this on Instagram Live, but I left my phone in the car. I'm sure this would have went viral.
I don't know if that song was played intentionally or not because I was in there, but I will never return here again due to the unprofessionalism. Besides that, the Asian people behind the counter always watched my husband and I whenever we came in there I would assume because they thought that we may steal something. This place has changed ownership and ever since then it has been a disappointment. I had been going here for over a year, but after all of this I will inform my friends and neighbors about this and discourage them from purchasing anything here.
