There’s a 7-entry roster ofÂ Total Wine & More locations now included in the Yellow Pages listing for the Houston area —Â though the first Houston outpost of the Maryland-based liquor store onlyÂ opened up in late October, in the decommissioned Office MaxÂ near Willowbrook Mall.Â But apparent new addresses for the store (known in Connecticut for its run ofÂ criminally low alcohol prices) include the former sites of 3 of Houston’s 4Â remaining Fresh Market locales (all of which shut down in May). Â Those old Fresh spots (the ones of Holcome Blvd., Memorial Dr., and San Felipe St.) have all been issued recent remodeling permits with Total Wine noted as the occupant. Other locations apparently in the works are inÂ Baybrook Mall (which isÂ hiring) and aÂ box site in RichmondÂ at 5472 W Grand Pkwy., reclaimed followingÂ Sports Authority’s fall andÂ retreat from Texas.
