"I got the chance to go to the grand opening of a brand new Total Wine & More in Estero, FL. This isn't far from home, and while it is a smaller store, the selection is incredible. They have a huge classroom and the tasting bar, located in the middle of the store, is impressive. The staff is great and I am excited to have another Total Wine & More in SW Florida. Cheers!"
"Very nice, brand spankin' new store in Estero, Florida. It is located in the Coconut Mall complex, itself a nice destination shopping center for a plethora of quality brands, but certainly not an outlet kind of place.
Brian Hollenbeck, formerly from the Fort Myers, Florida store, is the new store manager. A REALLY great guy and ever so helpful with a most pleasant demeanor. He has assisted me several times in the past securing some specialty champagnes and it is so nice to have a level of service that says a true "how can I help you". It's in the eyes and voice. Total is not just about the $$, but in helping fitting the customer with their needs and desires.
Also, most pleasantly, got a code on my phone for being a member (free, just sign up) for $$ off my first purchase there and as fortuna would have it, it happened to have $3.00 off coupons (Stoli 1.75L restocking our home larder) off so SCORE.
They have been my go to place to find great high end champagnes at what I consider fair and reasonable prices. They have suggested several surprisingly nice choice suggestions I would not otherwise have tried.
Total Wine & More does truly rock, both the new Estero, Florida location as well as Fort Myers. Give them a try, you may well be surprised at the vast selection and kindly customer service...
"Newly opened store with LOADS of reduced price merchandise. Great for small gifts for Christmas."
"Finally Estero has a Total Wine. Store looks great conveniently located in the old Sports Authority location next to Petsmart."
