Binny’s Evergreen Park: Doors are Open NOW

Binny's Beverage Depot

 

The wait is over.  Now… finally… you can come inside the brand new Binny’s Beverage Depot in Evergreen Park and buy stuff. Find us at 3447 W 95th St in Evergreen Park.

 

So far, a lot of people have remarked that it seems strange that just a few months ago, the building was a bowling alley. About that – we love the building and didn’t want to completely forget its heritage, so we built a shrine to Bleekers, complete with 20 original bowling pins, 28 bowling balls and bowling shoes in every size from baby to Bozo.

 

This is important: We are so proud to introduce Binny’s to this neighborhood. As a family-owned, Chicago-based company, we are passionate about community and heritage, and that’s why we’re so excited to be in Evergreen Park. Give us a visit. Check out our store, our selection, our prices, our mountains of beverages, and most importantly, our people.

Binny’s in Evergreen Park: Busy and Crowded

Binny's in Evergreen Park - A Crazy Blur

 

With less than a week until doors open, the upcoming Binny’s in Evergreen Park is a flurry of activity. Yet more wine, spirits and beer arrive every day, and we have to sort it all, build displays and stock it to shelves. Nobody even has enough time to pose for proper photographs for our website. But somehow they have enough time to make comments like, “Hey jerk! Put down that camera and get to work.”

 

We’ll see you next week at Binny’s in Evergreen Park when we finally open the doors to the public. And maybe a week or two after that, store manager Jeff Bogdan can finally get some rest. (Pic of a tired Jeff Bogdan after the jump.)

Yet more progress at the upcoming Binny’s Evergreen Park! We’re hard at work filling the South Side’s biggest wine and spirits superstore, coming soon to 3447 W. 95th St. Beer has arrived.

Binny’s in Evergreen Park: More Progress

Wine Shelves at Binny's in Evergreen Park

 

Here’s a quick, out-of-focus update (I didn’t bring the good camera this time) on the new Binny’s in Evergreen Park. What a difference a day makes! Trucks arrived first thing in the morning yesterday, dropping off the first shipments of wines and sprits from all over the world. We still have a long way to go – and many, many more trucks full of merchandise to unload, sort through and stock on shelves before we open the doors for business on November 20th. And we do have some surprises coming, too. So keep your eyes on this space, and we’ll see you on the 20th!

Binny’s in Evergreen Park: Peek Inside

 

Progress! Construction is happening right now on the upcoming Binny’s Beverage Depot location in Evergreen Park. You already know the stats – it’s shaping up to be 24,000 square feet of beverage superstore, including a 28 door beer cooler, temperature-controlled rare and fine wine cellar, walk-in humidor and more wine, spirits and beer than the human mind can actually conceive. It isn’t much right now, just a construction zone, but watch for the store to open in late November, and watch this space for more soon.

 

It’s all going in the former location of Bleeker’s Bowling Lanes. We think it’s cool to preserve the neighborhood landmark. Just wait until you see the space… check out the pics after the jump.

 

By the way, we’re getting a lot of questions about jobs at the new location. If you’re in the market, be sure to check out our careers page, where you’ll find instructions and a link where you can apply for jobs.
