Sommelier Kelli Kling and Liquor Manager Brett Hertzog are getting ready to welcome you to the brand new Liquor on 248th, operated by Otter Co-op.

Cheers! Community raises a glass to Co-op’s expansion

Selection and service at the heart of new Liquor on 248th

After close to a century serving Fraser Valley shoppers, Otter Co-op continues to evolve to serve its members and customers better. In the coming weeks, the Co-op will open the doors on a new, state-of-the-art liquor outlet.

Liquor on 248th is coming to Otter Co-op’s Aldergrove retail centre, joining the full grocery store, fashion centre, pharmacy and home and hardware store.

“We’ve been really blessed with our growth and support from our guests, and this now allows us to provide a full-service shopping experience,” says Jack Nicholson, Otter Co-op CEO.

Sip, sample and explore

The brand new 10,000-square-foot store is filled with both local and imported wines and spirits, not to mention one of the largest walk-in beer coolers in BC, filled with local brews and Fraser Valley favourites.

“We want to be the Fraser Valley’s go-to location for wines, beers and spirits,” Nicholson says.

Here’s what else you’ll find:

  • Knowledgeable, well-trained staff including a sommelier who’ll ensure you find the ideal beverages for your tastes and budget;
  • The expansive wine selection includes more than 1,000 labels!
  • Sign up for the wine club and sample sommelier-selected wines, chosen just for you, each month;
  • Enjoy a variety of wine, beer and spirit tastings in store, plus other special events;
  • The Co-op will even have their own wine label – Angry Otter – to be unveiled at the grand opening.

The store’s grand opening announcement will be coming soon – be sure to “like” Liquor on 248th on Facebook to hear about it first.

Join the team!

If you’re already a pro or have a passion for learning about one of BC’s most evolving specialty industries, Liquor on 248th is looking for spirit, beer and wine enthusiasts to join their team.

In particular, with its vast selection of craft, local and imported beer, Liquor on 248th is hoping to welcome a beer expert with Prud’homme training. If this brews excitement for you, they’d love to hear from you!
