If BevMo seems like the Trader Joe's of booze and Hi-Time the farmers market, Total Wine & More would have to be the Costco.
In 2008 the alcoholic beverage chain opened their first OC store in Tustin. In the intervening years, a Brea store came, and now in an old Office Max on 16272 Beach Blvd., it'll open its third OC store in Huntington Beach.
I'll now repeat the joke I had when the Tustin store opened:
Their motto is 8,000 wines. 2,000 spirits. 1,000 beers. To clarify, that's 8,000 different kinds of wine. 2,000 different kinds of spirits. 1,000 different kinds of beers. Or as it's otherwise known in fraternities: “a good weekend”.
Now for the serious part. Though the HB store is still yet to be
open, it's holding a hiring event today at theTustin store from 8 a.m.-8
p.m today, Thursday, February 23rd. More details can be seen here.
