Total Wine is a large, clean, well-run store with a good-sized staff that seems friendly and helpful.
The wine selection is very impressive! I buy all of the wine for my wine tasting group here (http://www.firstwednesdayswinetasting.com). They have a massive selection with some hard to find stuff and many exclusive items. The wine staff is great, and the prices are terrific.
The choice of wiskey is great, and they carry quite a few interesting liquors as well.
The beer selection is very good as well. It's over 300 beers, but many of those are common/average beers. I gave them a 4.5 for selection, but that's because they just have so many good wines and liquors as well. In their singles aisle they carry most of the Sam Smith line-up, many Belgians, Rogue, Allagash, etc. - a cart-load of micros and dozens of assorted imports! And for a cold six-pack, their selection of micros can't be beat locally.
I would highly recommend them for beer and wine!!!

Great outlet store right near the Cherry Hill Mall in Jersey. Lots and lots of wine to choose from, from all regions of the world, but obviously my focus is on the beer. They have a very ample craft beer selection, giving you the option to create your own six pack. Additionally, they keep a good selection of large bottles in stock. Not the greatest place in the world to find what you're looking for, but still very good. Staff is helpful if you approach them, and very knowledgeable...about wine at least. Wine tastings occur here often.

I finally visited this place after wanting to check it out for months. It's in a shopping center behind the Cherry Hill Mall so always put off going. Basically, it's a large chain liquor store that's clean but kind of cold and sterile.
In the back right corner there are a few coolers of cold six packs and a walk in cooler with cases and kegs. Opposite of the coolers there is a very long aisle with a pretty impressive selection of craft beer that is available in NJ. One side of the aisle is all four and sick packs with the other side consisting of singles. They have thousands of different beers, including a ton of 12oz singles which is really cool. This place is a ticker's dream really. The only problem is that the stock consists of mostly American craft. They do have a Belgian, German and other section but they are kind of pedestrian. Also, the beers are organized by style instead f region or brewery which is kind of odd. So Founders Cerise is about 300 yards away from Founders Dirty Bastard. Strange. Although they carry a ton of stuff, they don't carry any of the most interesting beers that make it to NJ. No lambic(other than Cuvee Renee), Scandinavian beers, Fantome, Italians, etc. On the plus side they carry Pike, Fort Collins, Full Sail and a few others not commonly seen in the area.
While I was there there were three different employees constantly walking up and down the beer aisle. None of them ever approached me and they honestly looked annoyed that was taking my time browsing their selection. The woman at the counter was friendly though.
Overall, this place has great potential but they kind of play it safe. A nice selection of beers but it could be amazing. Also, they charge a bit more than their competition in the area. I'll probably shop mostly for extras here and FW if they get more in.

Stopped on a Saturday while my wife was shopping at a local mall.
Typical layout for a Total Wine store. Selection was also typical, as was the selection. This store was more disorganized than any of the others I have visited. Lots of empty spaces on the shelves and lots of things in the wrong places. I thought I found a number of things at great prices only to realize they were misplaces. Many itmes also on the shelves with no price marker. Got a couple of things at a good price (4 pack of Duvel with a glass). Probably worth a stop if you are in the area., but not worth going out of your way for.

I've been to a few total wine and more in Florida and in Georgia. The overall feel of this place is just a typical warehouse of booze. Very cold and wide open. The wife and kids came here the week before Christmas for a little shopping. The beer is to the right as you walk in , towards the wall. The far aisle is mostly cases and gift packs that stretch two aisles. The aisle right next to that is all singles and the next is mostly six packs and twleve packs. A decent selection but at this point most of the goodies have been picked up. I came here for some La fin du monde and all of it was sold it... Damn. But we did pick up some harder to find bombers that aren't available in our immediate area. Wookey Jack,Brux and few others.
Service wasn't all that bad as well. A couple of straglers who didn't really look like they knew what they were doing but a few others who were very helpful. When I couldn't find any Unibroue she took the time to check it out again and check in the back. Going the extra yard works for me.
All and all not a bad experience,just a little rough around the edges with some employees. Yet the place seemed well organized and marked off the import section of where they came from. I would defientley come back if Im in the area but probably not make a trip out of my way for it.

After reading the reviews below, I think I saw a much different slice of this store when I visited. Stopped by on a Sunday night, and the beer section looked ravaged and unattended. Plenty of beers missing completely above their name tag, and sixers tossed around like their had been a war that no stocker bothered to clean up. Selection was very ho-hum, as they carry, as noted by other reviewers, whatever the flagship beer is for each company: DFH, Rogue, Brooklyn, Sierra Nevada, Yards, etc. Geographical scope was decent while the international selection stunk. Not much beyond Guinness, Stella, or Moretti. Nothing but sixes and singles of 12 ounce bottles nothing seasonal or special besides a few cases of SN Celebration. Then again, that may be because the beer section looked like an Old West ghost town. The vast majority of the beer was left out on the shelves with freezer cases holding sixers of pretty much the same selection as the shelves, but with all the macros mixed in. I thought I had caught this store with it having a hangover, but the lack of service and the much-below-average wine section (in size, selection, cultivation, and price) made this branch by far the worst Total Wine Ive ever seen. Warehouse style does afford one upside: a sixpack of Brooklyn Black Choc. Stout for $6.50.
I'd make the short drive down Route 38 to Martin's for beer shopping.

I was very impressed by this store. Before I get to the heart of my review, let me just say that I didn't need any help so I feel bad saying service was a 3.5. But without much interaction before the checkout line, that is appropriate for my visit. But honestly, no complaints.
The selection for both wine and beer was really good. Will you get every microbrew you may want. Probably not. But given the hordes of microbrews out there, I was quite impressed. I got some new French wines, a Belgian Lambic for Thanksgiving, and an asortment of microbrews.
Probably the best thing about this store is the individual beer aisle. I've been intending for a while now to try Dogfish's Midas Touch. Due to how expensive it is, I'm so glad I can buy just one 12 oz. bottle of it to try it out. In other words, you can make your own six pack. I'm going to use this to try new beers and to make a beer selection pack for Christmas gifts for friends. I'm definitely going to go here from now on if I'm looking to try out new, unfamiliar beers.
I didn't see Heavyweight's beers here, which would be a major oversight since it is a Jersey brewery. I'll have to look for it again.

This place is simply cavernous, but there is little in the form of beer. Compared to its siblings in DE, the selection is pitiful. It happens to be just a few minutes from where I work, so I might check it out during lunch every now and then. If you are passing by the Cherry Hil mall it is worth a look, but they don't seem to restock their shelves too often. If you are coming from PA to buy singles, spend a little more time on the road and travel to Monster Beverage in Glassboro. You will be much happier with your haul then.

It's tucked back near the inside corner of a big strip mall off Rt. 38. Parking is plentiful, though weekends and holidays get a bit hairy. A bonus is the Sam Ash close by, for those into slavering over over-priced instruments.
It's a big store, like so many box-style establishments, and the name pretty mush tells you what to expect. This place is about wine. You walk straight back from the entrance and make a left after a few aisles. There be the beer.
And they experience some good inventory turnover, so everything is fresh, clean, and well-stocked. And the cold beer is plenty cold.
Service is an afterthought if you're no there for wine. The cashiers know pretty much squat, the floor staff knows a bit more, and the managers help bring up the average a bit. But hey, chances are you know what you're looking for if you're reading this, so you don't always need in-house assistance. And the cheery, if challenged, attitudes help keep the enjoyment level reasonably high.
Selection is, in a word, disappointing. With all this room, you'd hope for s few gems, but they're all standard NJ issue, with the expected locals thrown in the mix of course. And yes, there are imports, but it seems more of each country's cross-section as opposed to a strong selection from any one country or more. Put it like this: if you're looking for something you know they should have, chances are they will. If you're looking for inspiration, there are better destinations. But, as a positive, they work hard to keep everything ordered alphabetically. So they've got that going for them, which is nice.
Prices are a strong suit. I know bar owners who come here for beers on sale as opposed to buying from distributors because there's some serious value when you shop the specials. So you can be confident you're not overpaying if you find something you want.
So if you're shopping around Rt. 38, or just driving by, and feel the hankering to buy something you know everyone should have, stop in. Your wallet will thank you. Just don't make a special trip.

Total Wine is a huge, cavernous warehouse with one of the largest selections of wine that I ever saw. The wine people are very knowledgeable about there aisles, the taste of the wines, and how they matchup with food. The beer aisle people are a little more lackluster in their knowledge.
There are pluses to the store. There was a large selection of Belgian and German beers, including several Trappist varieties and some nice Paulaner choices. There is a good selection of single bottles to make up your own sixer. The micro section is large but tends to be east coast rather than more broad geographically. That said, you're almost certain to find some beer you want to drink.
There is a nice walk-in beer fridge that would be great, except that it's almost all macros, except for a couple Sierra Nevadas. The one area that is neglected are the seasonal beers. I would have hoped for a few bocks or dopplebocks or even a Maibock at this time of year, and there were none.
Total Wine is a decent place but not the nirvana I was hoping for. Their prices are very good, though.
