Just a quick progress report on the new Binny's we're building in Champaign, IL. Construction is running right on schedule, and everything is looking great for our target opening in February. You'll to find the new Champaign Binny's Beverage Depot at 802 W. Town Center Blvd in the former Borders Bookstore building. The Champaign Binny's is free-standing, covering 25,000 square feet of retail space. The store will offer something like 10,000 different wines, spirits and beers. The location will feature a big wine cellar, walk-in humidor, and a HUGE, 28-door beer cooler. This Binny's will also have a special tasting and events space for wine classes and tasting events. These photos were taken a couple weeks ago. Things still look a bit dusty and industrial, but we're excited to see things take shape. Stay tuned to the Binny's Blog for more progress reports on the first Binny's Beverage Depot outside of the Chicago area soon!
