Last month we reported on the closing of one of the Best Buys off Veterans BLVD in Metairie. The story closed rather quickly, as it was not producing as much traffic as the other two locations located in the Metairie area.
We first learned of that closure from a small, but growing blog called Around Metairie. Today Around Metairie is back in our news feed as the publication is reporting that the retail giant Total Wine & More is opening their first location in Louisiana at the former Best Buy location.
Total Wine & More is a large retailer in the American market, with almost 200 stores nationwide. The store normally carries over 8,000 wines, 3,000 types of spirits, and 2,500 beers.
Along with its large selection, Total Wine has been a leader in educational seminars on the wine industry. No date for when the store is planning to open but check back with us after the new year for an updated listing.
