New Wayside Liquor owners

Lisa Ingebrand

Scott Pearson and LaRae Gast are the new owners of Wayside Liquor in Montgomery. 


The partners in life and business purchased the liquor store on Monday, April 16, from Chuck Way and Tina Way of Montgomery and Al and Carleen Sevcik of Lonsdale, who opened the business in May 2005. 


“We’re going to keep it Wayside Liquor and hope to learn from the current employees and customers. I’m sure there will be a few changes—for the better—in the future, but nothing right now,” Pearson stated. “We want to become part of the community—be involved—and will strive to provide excellent customer service.” 


They also plan to keep the local liquor store’s popular quote sign on Highway 21, but might upgrade it to a digital sign. 


Pearson and Gast hail from the Lakeville/Prior Lake area. They have a combined total of six children and nine grandchildren and enjoy being with their family and riding their motorcycles.
