Our History

Serving Southern Illinois for 50 Years 
Serving Southern Illinois for Over 50 Years!

We've been in business for fifty years, offering Southern Illinois a huge variety of liquor, beer, wine and more.  We have six convenient locations throughout the region, so you can be sure an Illinois Liquor Mart is near you. Tom Hoffmann and his two brothers, W. Stephen Hoffmann and Phillip D. Hoffmann opened their first store, Eastgate Liquors in Carbondale 50 years ago. 

Today, Tom’s son and daughter, Tom Hoffmann II and Wendy McClanahan are instrumental in running the family business.  The Eastgate store moved over to the current Warehouse Liquor Mart location, where it remains today.  Illinois Liquor Marts has locations in Murphysboro, Carbondale, Marion and Mount Vernon. The newest location, Plaza Wine and Liquors in O’Fallon, opened May 1st, 2013.
