Maryland-based alcohol retailer Total Wine & More will open its first Spokane Valley store on Nov. 21.
The new building, at 13802 E. Indiana Ave., is 25,000 square feet. The company’s first Spokane location, at 9980 N. Newport Hwy., is roughly the same size. It opened in December 2012.
Company co-owner David Trone said the store’s location is intended to attract customers who currently drive to Idaho to buy spirits or wine at prices below those found in most Washington stores.
Trone said Total Wine’s relationships with distributors and producers helps it offer prices competitive with those in Idaho.
Total Wine’s selections include about 1,500 different Washington state wines and 550 Pacific Northwest beers, said company Vice President Edward Cooper.
The new store will have a climate-controlled wine cellar for high-priced bottles, a walk-in humidor for cigars, and rooms for classes, meetings and events.
