Bellevue Beat | Cheers! Bellevue Is First to Land Total Wine & More Store
Total Wine & More, America's largest independent retailer of fine wine, spirits and beer, is opening its first ever Washington store in Bellevue. The new Bellevue store, slated to open in late June, marks the 81st location in the U.S. for Total Wine & More.
With 30,000 sq. ft. of space, the new Bellevue location will offer approximately 8,000 wines, 3,000 spirits and 2,500 beers and will include well-known, hard-to-find and local labels--an unparalleled selection, greater than any other retailer in the greater Bellevue area including Seattle. Consumers will also find low prices and excellent service from the company's expertly trained staff. In addition, Total Wine will feature a climate-controlled wine cellar for rare selections, a walk-in humidor for fine cigars, as well as provide space for private tastings, consumer education courses, community meetings and special events.
Since opening its first store in 1991, Total Wine & More has been committed to being the premier wine retailer in every community that it serves. Total Wine regularly features wine, spirits and beer tastings with a focus on wine-producing regions and seasonal topics. All employees go through an extensive three-week training program covering the various regions, production methods, varietals, brew styles and tasting analysis before stepping onto the sales floor.
The new Total Wine Bellevue (opening June 28, 2012) at 699 120th Avenue (formerly Larry's Market and next to Uwajimaya Bellevue) in Wilburton Crossing is accepting applications for all position levels, from cashier to manager. To learn more and apply for employment, visit Total Wine & More.

Bellevue Beat | Sun is shining and so are you Bellevue
"Sun is shining and so are you," proclaims the lyrics to Axwell & Ingrosso's song "Sun is Shining". Well, the sun is shining and Bellevue sure looks beautiful when the sun shines.
We hit the streets of Bellevue with James Older, manager at Drones Plus Bellevue,
and the DJI Inspire 1 drone to catch the beautiful Bellevue sunshine.
