About Us


Richard Metzger is a serial entreprenuer. In 2014 Richard decided it was time to do it again. With the purchase of Coulson's News deli and the creation of Broadway Plaza Liquors, Richard is making a splash in downtown Albany. Richard and his wife Tracy, residents of downtown themselves, have seen first-hand the downtown living renaissance and understood the increasing demand for retail.


Coulson's News Deli will remain the downtown staple that it is. However with Richard's twist on the classic convenient store, you will love it even more. Make it a one stop shop, by heading next door as well, to Broadway Plaza Liquor!


Stop in and see the major changes that have already happened, like new magazine racks and a new coffee bar.  The new Deli is now open. We have a craft beer growler filling station. We have added soft ice cream. Keep checking back to see what's coming next.
