The Shopper’s Vineyard wine superstore in Clifton has agreed to settle a race discrimination case after the EEOC filed suit on behalf of a black front-line manager who was terminated during an alleged downsizing.

Bernard Irving was the store’s only black manager and was terminated even as less experienced white managers were kept on. Within a year of his firing, the store hired four white managers while still refusing to rehire him.

The store agreed to a five-year consent decree under which managers will be trained about racial discrimination issues and hiring practices. While the store admits no wrongdoing, it did agree to pay Irving $60,000.
