An experienced and educated staff who will help you make the best buying decision by evaluating your needs and preferences every time you come in the store. Our emphasis is on building relationships and trust, not simply selling products. We have instilled in our staff that “we are only as good as the last bottle of wine we sell”. Toward that end, we literally taste thousands of wines, beers and liquors so you don’t have to taste the bad ones. To maintain our edge, Chan promotes and fosters professional development among the staff. We also have a strong presence of food and beverage experience among our management and consultant staff with restaurant backgrounds. While this list is not complete, it does demonstrate the level of experience, education and accreditation within the organization that exists to train our own staff and provide a high level of service to our customers and the community.
