Binny's Beverage Depot
Wine lovers rejoice. Binny's Beverage Depot is arguably the best wine and gourmet food store in the city. There are mind-boggling aisles of just about every type and brand of wine you could want. The prices are equally astonishing. For the connoisseur, check out the large selection of vintage and collectible wines. In the back of the store is a deli that sells a fine variety of cheeses, crackers, and other products perfect for entertaining.
I went to Sam's frequently over the last eleven years. Always a pleasure. In the last two weeks I've been to the new Binny's (in Sam's space) two times. BOTH times there was a problem. First, they tried to overcharge me almost $300 at checkout. Then after spending a large amount of money on food, wine and beer, they were extremely difficult when I tried to return the tap and kegs because I didn't have a receipt. When I first questioned why I would need a receipt and if they told my husband it was required the woman working there told me to "look around", saying there were signs everywhere. Unbelievable. I told her that there is not one customer that would think to read the signs on the walls just for the hell of it while shopping. This company has had a terrible reputation for years. They are going to run the former Sam's space into the ground.
I will never shop at Binny's again. From now I will be shopping at Sam's. The store would not honor stated price on wine list I received from Binny's at a wine tasting. Not only was staff rude but kept passing me on from salesperson to salesperson. Store manager was nowhere to be found.
I enjoy shopping at Binny's. I can get wine as well as gourmet foods and goodies. The staff is always helpful and knows their product. The prices are reasonable--better than many of their competitiors.
