Simon Levi Co., a Carson-based firm with a 115-year business record, has closed its wholesale liquor distributorship and eliminated 275 jobs. Levi, which has distributed leading distilled spirits in Southern California since 1934, officially eliminated that operation Friday. The company, which evolved from 1870s-era general store operations in Temecula and San Diego, will continue to own and sell a line of wines and beer. The firm eliminated its food operations in 1952.
