A Visit to Rockhead Wine & Beer Market
Formerly Premier Wine & Spirits, Rockhead Wine & Beer Market has recently moved from its long-time Dresden Row location to Windsor Street, adjoining the Windsor Street Sobey’s store. The new store has its own entrance from the spacious parking lot but also connects directly to Sobey’s indoors. This will make shopping for a bottle or two of wine or other tipple vastly more convenient than in the previous, tucked away location.
The day I visited last week, staff were still stocking shelves and getting used to their new digs. Already though, after less than a week, they told me that walk in traffic was much higher than before. It was certainly busy during my visit. The store is continuing to specialise in fine Craft Beers from around the world while offering a well-selected range of wines and spirits. For more information please call: 902.435.6945 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
