Good Luck. I began my wine career in retail, and I still have a special love for it. In many ways, I wish I had continued. Of course, my whole life would have been different. I don't know what you did before Total Wines, but I hope that with Total you were in a position of decision-making and had some say over the products on the shelf. So often, big stores with a bunch of shelf space are undiscerning, and I hope use was made of your wine acumen in populating the store with the best wines of their types in their price ranges. It could be easier to be in such a position in a smaller local store, where because of the more limited shelf space, such decisions will be even more important. Such shops succeed or fail on the basis of customer service, and I am sure your broad wine knowledge will serve well your relationships to your customers. The only negative is that the customers you have at Total will be far from your new store, so you may need to build your base from scratch.
