With the opening of Total Wine, this becomes the sixth store opened in the brand new Central Park Commons.

Total Wine

Now I know what you are thinking. Do we really need another big box liquor store in Eagan? The answer is definitely yes.

You see, I love to shop at local liquor stores such as MGM Liquors of TL Liquors, but often times I can’t get certain types of beers or tequila at the local liquor stores.

In fact, I even go to Costco or Sam’s Club, but the choice at Total Wine is second to none.

However for me, the real reason I love going to Total Wine is the customer service within the store. Whether it is a variety of tastings or the knowledge of the staff, I seem to find someone that can help me.

For example, I was recently in a Total Wine and was inquiring about a certain type of Italian wine. The staff member pointed out similar types of wines to consider. And they were less expensive in price.

She indicated the flavor was similar to the varietal I was perusing. Instead of trying to steer me towards a more expensive wine, she said to try something similar.

In addition to wine, beer and spirits, at Total Wine you will also find a great choice of cigars in their humidor and they have a very large meeting room space to host an event.

Lastly, during the grand opening extravaganza, a certain part of sales proceeds went to support 360 Communities, which is a non-profit that helps to engage communities to prevent violence, ensure school success and promote long-term self-sufficiency.

I call that doing good in our neighborhoods.
