Why Buy Wine at a Liquor Store?

Are you already hooked on the convenience of shopping for wine at the grocery?


Not so fast. Check out these reasons why wine shopping at the grocery store may not be your best bet.

Sure, picking up a bottle or two of wine when you do your regular grocery shopping may be convenient, but are you really getting the best value? Buying wine at the supermarket might not be the best choice for many reason!

1) Service

Think about it, when was the last time a clerk at your local grocery store gave you a great wine pairing recommendation? Recently, a customer let us know that a grocery sales associate helped her make a Moscato selection based on the label design. Don’t get us wrong, we love a good wine label, but we also feel that an informed customer service experience is irreplaceable. The staff here at Bill’s Package Store know our products well. We can help you choose a wine based on your preferences or even what you are serving for dinner!

2) Selection

The grocery store may carry “big box” brands, but do they have your favorite flavor? Here at Bill’s Package Store, not only do we carry the big brands, but we carry a wide variety of wine flavors within them. Of course, we also carry many more rare bottles than those found in the supermarket. If you don’t see the wine you are looking for, just ask us! We can help you find a similar wine or we can even work with you to find the specific wine you’re after and get it in our store!

3) Quality

While it’s true that many shoppers will pick up a bottle of wine on their grocery run, not all shoppers will. What does this mean for the less popular wine brands that stock those shelves? That means they will likely sit there collecting dust until they are sold. Not every wine variety ages gracefully, so this may mean that you end up with an old bottle that really shows its age. When you buy from a liquor store, you can be more confident that the wine has been stored at an optimal temperature and treated with the utmost care with your tastebuds in mind. At Bill’s Package Store, we won’t sell you anything we wouldn’t serve at our own table!
The next time you are at the grocery store, we strongly recommend you skip the wine aisle and come see us at Bill’s Package Store instead. Our knowledgeable staff can help you find the perfect bottle of wine within your price point to pair with the steak, chicken, or salad you just purchased! We are conveniently located on Ft. Campbell Blvd. in Clarksville, TN. While you are here, make sure and check out our awesome selection of whiskeys, bourbons, and other spirits too. We are excited to see you soon!
