Binny’s Beverage Depot expects to begin construction of a new store in Mokena, Illinois this summer, with opening expected in late autumn. The 15,000-square-foot store will be the chain’s 32nd location, and will mark the first time the Chicago-based retailer has built a store from the ground up.
Like other Binny’s locations, the site—at 21410 Wolf Road—will feature a temperature-controlled wine cellar, a walk-in humidor, a rare spirits room and a beer cooler comprised of more than 20 doors. The new store is expected to stock upwards of 8,000 wine, beer, distilled spirits, cigar and accessories SKUs. With annual sales revenue of some $330 million, Binny’s operates stores in Chicago and its surrounding suburbs, as well as Bloomington and Champaign in downstate Illinois.
