New Wine Store Coming to Central and Walnut Hill in Dallas: Total Wine & More

Good heavens, Walnut Hill and Central is turning into Booze Row. Centennial has been on the corner for a long time and Spec’s, the ginaormous liquor and wine store, opened there in mid-December. This morning comes news that Total Wine & More will open in “early summer” just a few blocks down (or up) from Spec’s. (Note: They’re hiring!) This will be the chain’s first store in Texas and 80th overall location. Here is their claim:

“Total Wine will offer a greater selection of wines, spirits, and beer in its store than any retailer in Dallas.”

Yow. Zah. That’s ballsy. I guess we’ll wait and see. Oh wait, Co-Owner and President David Trone has something to say:

“Total Wine & More will offer a shopping experience unlike any other in Dallas. We feature wine from nearly every wine-growing region in the world, as well as a tremendous selection of spirits from every price range, and a diverse offering of beers, from America’s most popular beers to hard-to-find microbrews and imports.  I believe Dallas residents will be surprised and amazed when they first enter our store.”

Bring it, Hoss. We’ll be the judge. Say, how much Texas wine are you bringing?

  1. If this is the same Total Wine that also has stores in Arlington VA, I welcome this addition with open arms. Incredible selection of delicious beverages.

  2. Nancy, they are a great wine store, with a gigantic selection. I’ve frequented the Total Wine in Las Vegas, as well as one in Florida, and both of those stores had a ridiculous selection of wines, covering pretty much all price points, from $7 to $700 bottles and more. Different set up than Spec’s, and I don’t think they are big on the food stuff like Spec’s is. With both of these companies now in D/FW it will be up to the long time local liquor stores to quit gouging their customers, and step up their games.

  3. they are huge all over and will crush the competition here. watch out specs. i visit the store in ft lauderdale often. good stuff and the contraction of the industry will continue

  4. Hope they’re as good as the above folks say they are because personally, I’m not that crazy about Spec’s. I still prefer Costco for value and Goody-Goody for selection and service.
