Opens Lethbridge, St Albert Next…..
On Thursday, an 18,000 square foot Wine and Beyond Spirits Beer & More store opened at the former Wholesale Sports location at 3160 Fairway St. South in Lethbridge. Part of the Alcanna group, Wine and Beyond is a chain of stores that features over 6000 international and domestic wines, about 2500 spirit and liquor brands from around the world and more than 2200 beers. In addition, the stores carry a wide selection of bar accessories ranging from gift bags and corkscrews to wine glasses and decanters. With this latest opening, the chain counts six stores operating in Alberta and with the exception of Lethbridge, all are in the Edmonton and Calgary areas. In addition, the seventh Wine and Beyond is opening later this month in the new Jensen Lakes Crossing in the North St Albert shopping district. Brodie Henrichsen and Connor O’Keeffe at Jones Lang LaSalle in Vancouver are handling the real estate requirements for the chain and they noted that the company is looking at expansion opportunities in markets in Alberta and British Columbia that have populations with over 100,000 people. The company is targeting the regional power centres and freestanding units with visibility, traffic and convenient access. The size necessary ranges from 12,000 to 20,000 square feet.
