A potentially game changing development in the retail wine business in BC: the Everything Wine chain has been sold to the Pattison Group. EW currently has 3 large "big box" locations in North Vancouver, Langford (Victoria) and Surrey. This sale means that three of BC's largest retail wine stores will now be owned and operated by one of BC's most respected businessmen and retailers, Jim Pattison. The licenses held by EW are the original "independent wine store" licenses, which means that they receive a larger "wholesale discount" than most of the private liquor stores in BC.
