Total Wine & More Continues California Expansion With New Sacramento LocationOctober 28, 2011
Total Wine & More has opened a new location in Sacramento, continuing its aggressive West Coast expansion and ramping up competition with California’s BevMo. The new Total Wine store, which opened last week at 2121 Arden Way, is its second in the Sacramento area. The retailer has operated in neighboring Roseville since 2008.
Total Wine & More’s new Sacramento venue is situated about one mile west of BevMo’s nearest store (3106 Arden Way). Concord, California-based BevMo, with more than 100 locations in California and Arizona, has been a regional force, but Total Wine & More is quickly expanding in the area. The Maryland-based retailer now has eight locations each in California and Arizona, as well as another three in Nevada. With its ambitious growth strategy, those numbers look set to continue rising sharply.
Total Wine now has a total of 76 stores in 10 states. In addition to its California, Arizona and Nevada locations, Total Wine has units in Florida (18), Virginia (14), North Carolina (13), New Jersey (4), South Carolina (3), Georgia (3) and Delaware (2). Total Wine’s current game plan is to open eight to 10 stores a year, each in the 20,000-25,000-square-foot range.Subscribe to Shanken News Daily’s Email Newsletter, delivered to your inbox each morning.
