Making a Difference in Collin County, Texas
Total Wine & More will toast the community by donating 10 percent of all wine sales during opening weekend (May 18-20) to Allen Community Outreach, which helps transform lives by providing essential human and social services to the cities of Allen, Fairview and Lucas. Allen Community Outreach’s “One Stop Shop” facility is the first of its kind in Collin County and provides a seamless system of services and programs in the community.
A Commitment to Customer Service
The customer service experience is enhanced by Total Wine & More’s experienced store team. Before they have assisted their first customer, team members participate in more than 100 hours of specialized instruction and training on various wine regions, production methods, varietals, brew styles and tasting profiles. Team members are readily available to share knowledge with customers, be it in the aisles of the stores, during one of the many in-store tasting session featuring national and international “rock star” vintners, brewers and distillers or during Total Wine’s “virtual tastings” taking place in the store’s classroom.
