Is Total Wines worth the cost?
Sunday, September 21, 2008
As I was in the area, I decided to stop by a Total Wines
today and see what they had. While there, I did get into a
conversation with someone, thus making a new wine friend in
the process. The one thing that I noticed was that while
the store had a nice selection, it was definitely missing
some items that should've been there. The second thing was
the prices on the bottles could've been anywhere from an
average of $2 higher (on regular low priced wines) to $4
higher (on 375ml bottles of dessert wines that go for $12)
than the prices at Canal's on Route 38 in Pennsauken.
While I am used to Total Wines being a Delaware business,
this was the first time I went into one of their locations
in New Jersey. I have said to people before that prices are
cheaper in Jersey than Delware and that's even with the
difference in taxes, but I have seen this price difference
between two different stores in Jersey and it doesn't make
While Total Wines might have a load of people on staff,
and a nice and organized operation, I think that I am
missing both the warmth, intimacy and lower prices than some
of it's competitors.
Now, I will have to start looking at some of the other
larger stores and writing my feedback.
