About a week from today, one of the biggest beer departments in the Midwest will open its doors. Mixed in with the over 1,500 different beers at our Bloomingdale location will be some rarities. Available from Stone Brewing Co. will be 2007 Double Bastard, 2008 Imperial Russian Stout, 2010 Old Guardian, 14th Anniversary Emperial IPA, and the 2008 Vintage of their holiday collaboration with Nogne O and Jolly Pumpkin. Look for these vintage Stone Brewing Co. ales in the single serve section of the beer cooler. Did we mention that the beer cooler at this Binny’s location has 28 doors?
Other gems and hard to find beers will be mixed in the beer set here, including but not limited to beers from breweries like De Molen, Brewdog, Nogne O, and HaandBryggeriet.
Of course all of the everyday favorites will be available too.
What a difference two days can make! Compare these pictures, taken yesterday afternoon, to those from the morning before, and you’ll get a peek at how fast things things are moving as we rush toward opening the newest Binny’s Bevearge Depot. Everybody is doing great, but we have a lot more work to do before we’re ready for our early September opening.
Employees from Binny’s Beverage Depots from all over Chicagoland came together to stock shelves at the upcoming Bloomingdale location today. Distributor trucks have been delivering wine, spirits, beer and cigar favorites, and it takes work to get everything onto shelves and ready to go.
How is the new store coming along? This morning, most of the shelves, gondolas and bins were set up and ready for stock. Now it’s up to the workers to get everything into shoppable shelf sets and impressive displays. More stock is rolling in all week. It’s going to be huge. Then there’s staff training and signage and all the tiny details that make everything work.
Expect the new store to open in early September. Very early September. That’s just a couple weeks away. For more details about the new store, check out this blog post. Otherwise, we hope to see you in Bloomingdale in September.
You probably know by now that Binny’s is coming to Bloomingdale. Watch for our new location at 353 W. Army Trail Road (just East of Stratford Square). It’s not really recognizable as a Binny’s Beverage Depot right now, but in less than a month, it will be stocked full of your wine, spirit, beer and cigar favorites.
The Bloomingdale Binny’s will cover 27,280 square feet, and will featu
re the biggest beer cooler at any Binny’s store (other than our South Loop location). We can’t confirm this, but we’re guessing it’s the biggest in the Western Suburbs. It will also feature one of our largest humidors, and a larger wine cellar than most.
The walls and coolers are in place, and everything is getting a coat of paint. Next will come the fixtures and then the shelves and then the products. The early construction process gives our buyers time to plan out shelf layouts and custom tailor each new location. In the weeks before the opening in early September, expect to see tons of trucks from various Illinois distributors.
The Bloomingdale store will be Binny’s Facilities Director Mike Trella’s 20th storeopening. “It’s going to be gorgeous,” he says. “Each one gets prettier than the last.”
