It seems the rumors flying around on Yelp and other Internet sites for the past few days are true.

The Allston location of Marty's liquor store is closing. Their last day of retail sales is Saturday, March 21.

According to the store manager, the landlord was raising the rent to a level Marty's didn't want to pay. The store's merchandise is being moved to Marty's on Washington Street in Newton..
