Is it possible that a liquor store with full inventory from, say, 1940, 1950 or 1970 exists somewhere boarded up, or at least that its full inventory was placed and remains in storage? There must have been situations where people passed on, or a bankruptcy occurred and for various reasons the stock is still there or was removed in toto to a secure place.
The U.S. is a big place and I have to think there may be, not one, but many examples of this.
I know people have found caches in stores, some quite sizable, but can a "ghost store" of this type still exist somewhere? What are the chances? A store where you could walk in and find a typical bourbon and straight rye inventory from one of the years mentioned?
