Total Wine & More is about to pop the cork on another Albuquerque location.
The new store at 6701 Uptown Blvd. NE will open at 9 a.m. Thursday, May 2, according to a news release.
Like the existing location near Cottonwood Mall — which opened less than three months ago — the Uptown Total Wine tops 20,000 square feet and boasts a selection of more than 8,000 wines, 3,000 spirits and 2,500 beers.
Headquartered in Maryland, Total Wine has locations in 15 states. The Uptown store is the chain’s 91st.
“We’ve been very eager to come to Albuquerque for some time, and we certainly see (it) as a metropolitan area that can support two of our stores, even the big-box kind of superstore we are,” Edward Cooper, Total Wine’s vice president of public affairs and community relations, told the Journal earlier this year.
