In addition, Total Wine & More offers many rare finds in the climate-controlled wine cellar, an array of fine cigars in the walk-in humidor plus gifts and glassware.
Since opening its first store in 1991, Total Wine & More has been dedicated to each of the communities in which they serve. Total Wine & More has dedicated more than $20 million in cash and in-kind contributions to local, regional and national non-profit organizations. At the Olympia grand opening, Total Wine & More will donate $10,000 to TOGETHER!, a Thurston County charity dedicated to the prevention of underage drinking.
"There are a few things we really love about opening in new markets: bringing service, price and an incredible selection of locally-produced and hard-to-find labels to our customers, and working to become an integral part of our new community," said David Trone, who co-owns Total Wine & More with his brother Robert.
Total Wine & More's Olympia location is open from 9a.m. to 10p.m., seven days a week. Beer and wine tastings will be offered on select days, with spirits tastings expected to begin in early August. A seventh Washington store is set to open in Spokane later this year.
