Total Wine gets OK for 2nd Minnesota store, but not without a fight

May 08, 2014

Big-box liquor store Total Wine & More won approval to open a store in Burnsville. As with Total Wine's efforts to open in other suburbs, the state's liquor-store lobby tried to bury the application in paperwork. Sun Newspapers reported last week on the 4-1 City Council vote that will allow Maryland-based Total Wine to open in Burnhaven Mall on West County Road 42; the Star Tribune has a story today on how the fight between Total Wine and local liquor stores played out.
