This sounds like the sequel to Batman but it’s not. Total Wines & More, a big box wine chain, will open a second Tucson store located at 5870 E. Broadway on August 23

The Next Generation means the store offers an uber tech experience such as:

> In-store iPads located at a state-of-the-art tasting bar, to allow customers to interact with an app that recommends specific wines to pair with certain foods/meals that you’ll be preparing (recipes and wine recommendations may be printed in-store or e-mailed directly to the customer)
> A fully equipped education center to host classes on wine, beer and spirits
> Flat panel screens featuring video content on vintners, wineries and the wine-making process, as well as educational content on beer and spirits
> Complimentary Wi-Fi throughout the store, which is an essential foundation for providing additional apps, including an app for price transparency (they encourage their customers to compare prices)
> A ‘Brewery District’: a custom-made bar with 12 taps to with a rotating selection of local, regional and national beer

The store boasts 26,000 square feet. The store will offer more than 8,000 wines, 3,000 spirits, and 2,500 beers. You may need a GPS to find the pinot noir.
