Whether you’re stocking up on stocking stuffers, buying beverages for the company Christmas party, or just want to see how staff decked the halls this year, there’s always a good reason to visit Wyatt Oickle and the gang at Liquor Planet.
“We go all-out. If any liquor store in B.C. had better decorations I’d be pretty impressed,” he says.
And with sales in every department, from Irish creams to wines and spirits, there’s never been a better time to stock up!
“We want to wish everyone a happy holidays,” says Oickle. “Pretty much any style of alcohol you can think of, we’ve got a sale on from at least one brand.”
‘Tis the season for sipping
Once you’ve soaked in all the festive frills, catch up with the knowledgeable staff to sort through your Christmas list.
“We’re here to help you with everything you need for the holidays,” Oickle says.
How about a smooth Irish cream to savour on its own, pour for Santa, or add to your Christmas morning coffee? Liquor Planet has a wide selection.
Need a festive sampling of liqueurs for baking and cocktails? Ask a staff member to direct you to exactly what you need.
Stressed about impressing your guests at dinner?
“We have a Wine Guy – that’s his actual title – who can answer all your questions,” Oickle says. Look for Nick the Wine Guy in store Tuesday to Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. for advice on pairings at every price point.
And don’t forget to check out the premium spirits for a tasty nightcap of scotch, tequila or some other rare delight.
Who works longer hours: Santa’s elves or Liquor Planet?
In a panic about last-minute liquor? Don’t stress! Liquor Planet is open almost as much as Santa’s Workshop.
So even if you run out of wine while the turkey’s in the oven on Christmas day, you still have a chance to run to the store for more.
“We’re always here for you!” Oickle says.
