Boozehounds and Nerds of Greater Tucson, Rejoice!

Posted By on Wed, Aug 29, 2012 at 1:30 PM

The new Total Wine and More store at Park Place Mall holds its grand opening at 6 p.m., Thursday, Aug. 30. There will be complimentary wine, opening remarks by the president of Total Wine and More, and a ribbon-cutting featuring Tucson City Councilman Steve Kozachik. Now that's entertainment!

Anyway, this new store is packed with little details like in-store iPads that help with wine-food pairings; flat-screen televisions playing important booze-related things; an education center; and complimentary Wi-Fi throughout the store. The store is also putting out an app that will help shoppers compare prices with what's available at other stores.

It sounds cool, but I think I'll be staying with Plaza Liquors. These big-box stores are good as far as prices, but they've got zilch in the character category.
