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.

Binny's in Bloomingdale: Opening Soon

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."
