SASKATOON – Saskatoon’s first full-fledged private liquor store opened its doors on Friday.

Co-op welcomed customers to a brand new, 10,000 square foot liquor store in the Blairmore Suburban Centre area.

The store on Shillington Crescent boasts a selection of 4,000 beers, wines and spirits.

It also features a Tuscan-inspired tasting room and a walk-in cooler.

Co-op officials say they believe the location will attract customers from the surrounding neighbourhood as well as the entire city.

“What sets us apart is our extensive selection. It’s significantly more than what you would see in the government store for instance, or any other liquor store,” said Grant Wicks, Saskatoon Co-op general manager.

This is one of four private liquor stores approved by the provincial government.
