Kamloops This Week – Wine Club

What the Cluck?

 

This is a one-time, shameless plug for my other love!

What the Cluck Installations is my part-time, home-based gig where I create unique, one-of-a-kind pieces as big as a wall to as small as shoebox out of repurposed industrial materials.

Right now, we are focusing on pallet walls and rustic wall hangings for Remembrance Day and Christmas.

For more information you can connect via What the Cluck or check us out by searching on facebook!

Thanks!!

Now, back to getting classy drunk!! See you at Chefs in the City tonight.

a little price throw down.. save on vs bcl

I was curious to see how the prices at Save On compared to the BC Liquor store.Will having another wine retailer change the price of the BC VQA wine we can purchase here in Kamloops?

So, being curious, capable and a bit sneaky, I set out today to do a little spy work. And what I found was surprising!

I checked five BC VQA wines at random at the Signature Liquor Store in Sahali. Then, I walked across the parking lot and checked the same five wines at Save-On.

Here are my results. I have laid them out very professionally and using high tech methods, as you can see…

See? Super flashy, right? The pictures are from the Government store and the fancy, orange writing are the prices at Save On Foods today. The skinny of it is that in all but one instance, Save On was cheaper than the liquor store. Both of those prices exclude the tax and bottle deposit.

Will Save On stay cheaper? That remains to be seen. And they always have their case deal on top of these prices.

The verdict? Having another wine retailer is good for Kamloops grape lovers!

This is a super, jam-packed evening of wining and dining that is well worth the ticket price. Bonus?? It is for a good cause! I have been twice and it’s fantastic! There will be twenty restaurants and 9 wineries this year.

We will be there!  Hope to see you there, too!

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!
