  1. Premier Group Stores Give Back to the Buffalo Region

    At Premier, we're not just here to sell you wine and spirits (though we do love our jobs!). We also take great pride in supporting the Western New York community and the groups, organizations, and institutions that make it so special. Ever since the first Premier store was founded in 1969 by Burt Notarius, Premier Group member stores have been actively playing a role in keeping our valuable educational, healthcare, and cultural institutions strong. We donate thousands of dollars every year to great institutions such as Oishei Children's Hopsital of Buffalo, the SPCA, Mercy Hospital Foundation, The Darwin Martin House, Hospice Buffalo, and many others.

    We hope you'll watch this short video we put together about our role in the community, and hope that you'll take a moment to support some of these great organizations, as well!
