A downstate snack maker is shuttering its brick-and-mortar store and moving to an e-commerce format.
Beer Nuts, a Bloomington-based company, has announced they are closing their factory store. The store was closed last March due to the pandemic, but Beer Nuts President Andy Shirk says reopening the store was not a possibility.
Over the years, there were satellite stores at College Hills in Normal, Eastland Mall in Bloomington and Northwoods Mall in Peoria. The snack company produces a broad range of snacks, including peanuts, cashews, and almonds, along with mixes and specialty nuts. Beer Nuts have produced a full line of branded products in Bloomington for more than 68-years. The snack maker sells products all across the Midwest.
