Peoria, IL. June 20th, 2011- Evolutions Wines & Spirits has announced the opening of their newest and first downstate location for early August. Evolution Wines & Spirits will be located at 5832 N. Knoxville Ave within Junction City. The Peoria store is second in a planned seventeen city roll out of the Evolution Concept. The Evolution store concept is developed from the team behind the global wine retail brand, Sam’s Wines and Spirits. Sam's opened in 1946 carrying the largest selection of any retailer in the USA. During its 70 year reign, Sam's was the 13th most recognized brand name in Illinois and was on the tourist list for a "must see" in Chicago. Sam’s strength in the wine market was vast and at the time the business was sold it was selling nearly $75 million in wine and spirits. Known for their reasonably priced specialty and domestic labeled wines, Sam’s was committed to the quality and service they provided to their clients.
With years of knowledge and experience from Sam's, Brian Rosen and Richard Salberg are pleased to evolve the brand and experience in the Peoria market. Continuing the Sam's tradition, but in a more intimate model, Evolution Wines & Spirits will specialize in wine, spirits, and craft beers with a serious commitment to service, selection and knowledge.
With Evolution's first move from the Chicago area, the store is prepared to bring a world class experience to the residents of Peoria, who are currently underserved in knowledge and service. Customers can expect to find some of the finest labels, hand-picked by a team of knowledgeable sommeliers, convenient delivery and party planning guidance. Owners Brian and Richard recognized a need within the Peoria market to evolve the wine and spirit experience and provide Peoria the knowledge, selection and service it deserves.
Evolution Wines & Spirits offers shipping, party planning, corporate gift giving, delivery, concierge service and more. Brian Rosen and Richard Salberg will continue to evolve the Peoria market with their unique culture and philosophy that will build loyal relationships and exceed all customer expectations.
