“Our associates are excited to assist customers, having completed training programs focused on the varied and vast selection of both wine and craft brews,” said Thomas Magallanes, store manager. “We want to thank our customers for their patience as we prepared our new Beer & Wine Eatery. We are thrilled to be able to offer the perfect brew or wine to help them entertain for the big game!”
