Now this should be fun - BevMo! moving into Bellingham?

From the Bellingham Herald:
BevMo! Could be moving into Bellingham market
BevMo!, an alcoholic beverage specialty retailer, has applied for a state liquor license to open a store in the Bellingham market.

According to the application, the company wants to operate at 114 Stuart Road, in the retail center near Walmart that has United Furniture as a tenant.

BevMo! has 121 stores in California, Arizona and Washington and typically has a store size of 10,000 square feet. It has been busy opening stores in this state since the passage of Initiative 1183, recently opening in Silverdale and Tacoma, with plans to open in Tukwila on Friday, Sept. 28.
I have shopped at BevMo! (still have my membership card) in California. They got their start when California passed a law similar to WA State's Initiative 1183. They were a second-tier distributor that could not sell to the public. They just opened their warehouses, established a membership system and stood back. Very well run business. The location is right across the street from Wal*Mart and in the same business complex as Costco. Posted by DaveH at September 20, 2012 8:01 PM
