There aren’t any specialized Wine and Spirits retail businesses that provide personalized service in the area which this business will provide. This business will be targeting the entire demographics by designing this store to attract mid to high income demographics of the community as well. It will do so by having either Ceramic/Porcelain tile or Wood/Laminate flooring, wooden wine displays, wooden wine islands or metal wine baskets, high end metal shelving for Liquors, Cigar Humidor, etc.
