a trip down the wine aisle at saveon


It was a big day at Save On Foods in Kamloops!

In fact, they could have used a little traffic control in the parking lot it was so jam packed.

Today was the Grand Opening of their BC VQA Wine Department. I popped in this morning for a look and it turns out a thousand other people thought they would, too. Surprise! Here are some cool things to note about our latest (but really just part 2) wine retailer in town…

  • There are over 900 wines in this little space! Holy fermented fruit, Batman!


  • You will get a coupon for a discount on the featured wine they are pouring, if you happen to stumble upon them pouring that day!


  • Buy 6? Get 10% off. And that’s on mixed bottles! And every day to boot.


  • Their manager, Charlene Owen, used to be at Discover wines and knows her stuff. She will have a well trained and knowledgeable staff to help you choose your wine!


  • If you show up on a special occasion, maybe, just maybe, an MLA will pour you a sample of wine. That probably doesn’t happen every day though.


Wine was flying off the shelves! I bought two today and was really impressed with the selection! This is good for BC wine. Many little wineries can’t keep their tasting rooms open all year long, and where else are they going to sell this stuff? Really, over 900 wines. There were some great bottles there today!

Pop by this weekend for sampling from our Kamloops wineries! And watch for more great stuff from Save On Foods!
