Total Wine & More Eyes Expansion In Two States

The company is planning to open stores in the Dallas area and New York City.

Total Wine & More is planning to open two more stores in the Dallas area later this year. Situated in the Irving and Cedar Hill neighborhoods, according to local publication Culture Map, the new outlets will join the chain’s existing ten stores across the Dallas-Fort Worth region. The retail giant is also attempting to expand into New York City; the company has its eye on a location in the city’s College Point, Queens neighborhood, near Flushing, according to The location would comprise two separate stores—one for wine and spirits, the other for beer and food—to stay in compliance with New York liquor laws. The company, however, is already facing opposition, with retailers banding together to fight the move. Last December, Total attempted to open a location near White Plains, New York and was rebuffed by local lawmakers.
