The three stores were continuing to impact the market and serve an ever growing customer base, which led to the desire to expand again. Liquor Plus Duncan opened in December 2009.
Liquor Plus Duncan is the next generation in liquor store layout as it employs signage and decor innovations not before seen in liquor stores in BC, public or private. The design of Liquor Plus Duncan was so well received that the look has been adopted into the renovations at Liquor Plus Royal Oak.
March 2010 saw the opportunity to add to the size of Liquor Plus Royal Oak and apply what we learned in terms of design and layout in Duncan to our Royal Oak store.
Then, as of April of 2011, we opened up our 5th retail location, Liquor Plus Cobble Hill, in the Cowichan Valley, and a little over a one year after that we added our first location in northern Vancouver Island in Courtenay.
Fast forward to 2016 and we opened up our 6th location in Oak Bay and moved our Douglas Street location to Mattick’s Farm. Rebranding the Hillside liquor store at the corner of North Dairy and Shelbourne capped off a busy year for us.
We’ll be adding our 9th Island location in South Nanaimo in the Harewood neighbourhood fall of 2020.
