County planning staff have approved plans by Total Wine & More, the largest alcohol retailer in the United States, to open its first store in a new location. This decision comes after the battle that ensued when the national liquor store was denied an application to open up a location in another area. Despite this setback, Total Wine & More continues to expand its presence across the country.

Just ahead of 4/20, Snoop Dogg, Death Row Records & Hill Beverage Company announced their new partnership with Total Wine & More to debut a line of cannabis-infused beverages. However, California officials said the Jones Soda products contain a banned form of THC and are mislabeled, highlighting the need for proper regulation in the industry.

Total Wine & More owes much of its success to selling its own store-branded products, a retail innovation that's out of reach for small shops. This strategy has helped the retailer differentiate itself in a competitive market and attract customers looking for unique offerings.

Total Wine & More is partnering with Bayou City Hemp Company and 8th Wonder, having added their full portfolio of hemp-derived THC beverages to its stores. This move showcases the retailer's commitment to staying ahead of trends and meeting consumer demand for alternative products.

Today, Total Wine & More boasts 263 superstores and has recently become the largest alcohol retailer in the U.S., with revenues of $6 billion in 2023. This growth trajectory shows no signs of slowing down as the company continues to innovate and expand its reach.
