That's A SHAME. I loved that place and have frequented it many, many times.

That's weird Loretta because actually my dad's old business partner's favorite client sold it to Pat in the 50's.... Sometimes when the elite members of BHCC would be playing on the golf we would take their balls for ransom!!!!!

My uncle and a friend of his owned in the early 50 until Pat bought it from him. It was a really cool place to hang out back then. I remember watching the golfers from Bel Haven country club play all around the store.

My best friend's older brother Billy Riddick told him in 1961 as he departed for VMI "Tommy, there's not much I can tell you but Pat's Market has the coldest beer in town. Pat Arnold opened it sometime back in the 50s, then sold it to a couple of really nice guys from the Indian continent named Ram and Kash. Kash ran it until the mid to late 90s and then sold it to some Latin folks. For 25 years we would stop by for pizza, beer and ice before water skiing out of Belle Haven Marina, Kash would even run a tab if he knew you! Truly the end of an era.

our neighbor's husband was the original Pat - and has since passed away! We will miss the store, but are hoping for a resurrection and continued cold (coldest in town) beer!

20 years? Pat's Market was around back in the 60s. I'd say closer to 50 years in the business.

I am 63 years old, and still believe Pat's had the coldest beer anywhere!
