People throughout Hannibal showed up Saturday for the grand opening for Travis Spirit and Wine Garden on Auburn Street.
Owner Brenda Wilson dazzled attendees with wine tastings and food pairings, hors d’oeuvres and miniature cupcakes.
The new store, which offers wines from New York and throughout the world and various types of liquors, is in space adjacent to Travis Floral, which is run by Wilson’s dad, Jim Travis.
“We had this retail space open and the business was growing, so we decided to open the liquor store,” Wilson said.
Travis said the site now is more of a one-stop shop because people can stop in for a bottle of wine and then pop in the other shop for some flowers.
Travis Floral has been in business since 1945 and was started by Travis’s parents, Sela and Jennie Travis. He’s been running the shop since 1958.
Hours for Travis Spirit and Wine Garden are 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and noon to 4 p.m. Sunday.
Hours will change during the Christmas holiday season so Wilson said people can call to find out when the shop is open. The phone number is 564-6606.
