GREENWICH - Five months to the day after a fire ripped through All the Best Spirits, the Greenwich liquor store reopened its doors Friday.

An electrical outlet ignited the fire that destroyed the store in June.

Owner Mike Atkins says he?s glad he was able to reopen in time for the most important time of the year ? the holiday season. He says he had to gut the building and completely start over, which means everything is brand new.

An official ribbon cutting ceremony is scheduled for next Friday.
