June 18, 2012 (BELLEVUE, WA) – Total Wine & More will officially open its first Washington state superstore in Bellevue on Thursday, June 28. Located at 699 120th Avenue, Northeast (formerly Larry’s Market) in the Wilburton Crossing shopping center, this store marks the 81st location for the premier wine, beer and spirits retailer. Two additional stores are set to open in Tukwila and Spokane later this year.
The 30,000 sq. ft. Bellevue store will feature an unparalleled collection of more than 8,000 wines, 3,000 spirits and 2,500 beers, including the largest selection of Washington wines (1,450), distilled spirits (55) and beers (540) anywhere in the state, all at exceptionally low prices. A new feature for Total Wine will be a special section at the store devoted to craft beers. Total Wine’s “Brewery District” beer tasting bar will offer a special growler section with 12 taps that highlight Washington-brewed craft beers.
Total Wine & More’s Bellevue store will feature a climate-controlled wine cellar for rare selections, a walk-in humidor for fine cigars and gifts, as well as a space for regular tastings, consumer education courses, community meetings and special events. As with all Total Wine & More superstores, the Bellevue location will feature an upscale environment with excellent service from the company’s expertly trained staff.
“With the changes that took place on June 1st, we know that Washington consumers are conscious of the higher prices they are paying for their favorite brands,” said David Trone, who co-owns Total Wine & More with his brother Robert. “Total Wine & More will not only offer the best selection of wine, spirits and beer in greater Seattle, we will be the price leader compared to any other retailer in the area.”
