The kitschy sign has been part of the the Sunshine City since 1961. In 2018, World Liquors was demolished and the future of the iconic sign was uncertain. Ferg’s owner Mark Ferguson purchased it at auction and has been hard art work bringing it back to life.

We’re glad to see it find a new home in the booming EDGE District.
