The company went on: "Wall to Wall Wine and Spirits stores will feature a large selection of wine and spirits, as well as craft beer. The eclectic wine and spirits selection will feature a price point for all customers, along with specialty grocery items, including cheese, charcuterie, chips and crackers, as well as sodas and seltzers to help customers craft a full food and drink menu for any event or occasion.
