BEVMO! GOES THE EXTRA (MIRACLE) MILE WITH OPENING OF SEVENTH LA STORE
New Store in the Wilshire La Brea Apartments Opens November 2
Los Angeles, CA (October 27, 2017) – Residents and neighbors of the new Wilshire La Brea luxury apartment development will soon be in great spirits as the leading West Coast adult beverage retailer BevMo! opens its seventh Los Angeles area store on Thursday, November 2.
Located at 5212 W. Wilshire Blvd, the new BevMo! will offer more than 1,300 spirits, 1,000 beers and 1,600 wines. The Wilshire Blvd. BevMo! will immediately create 20 jobs, with more to follow as holiday hiring begins.
The 6,200-square-foot Wilshire Blvd. store sits directly below the Wilshire La Brea luxury apartments, joining other retailers such as Lassens Market and a variety of restaurants located on the street level. To make shopping easier for those who don’t live in the apartment complex, there is 60-minute on-site free parking via validation from BevMo!
“Situated at the intersection of La Brea and Wilshire puts us right in the heart of LA, and right in the middle of this vibrant neighborhood,” said Greg Endom, SVP of real estate for BevMo! “We’re thrilled to be opening here just as we move into the start of the holiday season, which is truly a ‘spirited’ time at BevMo!”
The store will open its doors to the public at 9:00 a.m. on November 2. A grand opening celebration will take place later that day from 4:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m., with a customary “sabering” of a bottle of champagne at 5:00 p.m. Other highlights that day will include goody bags and tastings of Veuve Clicquot and Moet & Chandon, with more premium beer, spirit and wine tastings throughout the grand opening weekend, including a Johnnie Walker Blue tasting and bottle engraving on Saturday, November 4 from 1:00 p.m. until 3:00 p.m.
The store’s regular hours will be from 9:00 a.m. – 9:00 p.m. Monday-Thursday, 9:00 a.m. – 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and 9:00 a.m. – 8:00 p.m. Sunday, with special holiday hours throughout the season.
