After a 20-year run, one local business owner is ready to move on

Mark Greenleaf, has been the owner of Carolina's Sports & Spirits, for 20 years, but in a recent Facebook post, he let all of his customers (and potential buyers) know that he is set to step down, and sell the Bangor watering hole.

The location at 16 Union Street, has been a nightlife destination for years. It was previously open as "The Waterfront" and "Legends", before Greenleaf bought the business.

In the past 20 years, they have made several upgrades to the bar, including a heated outdoor area, used for live music.

Greenleaf has promised that not much will change when ownership eventually changes hands, because he wants the spirit and vibe of Carolina's to continue on, once he finally finds a buyer.

The asking price is $599,000, but that is just for the business, not the real estate. Also, they buyer will have to sign an NDA, to as he states "keep the tire kickers away"

Any interested parties can contact, Tim Schuck, from Next Home Experience in Bangor, at 207-356-1211.

Lots of old & new customers weighed in with their thoughts on Mark Greenleaf deciding to sell:

Wow! I have really mixed emotions reading this. Many excellent memories that will last a lifetime but also understand it’s been a grind. Glad I got one last ride in October.
I wish you best of luck in your next chapter, Mark.
