A new location of BevMo!, the Costco of booze, has been approved to enter Santa Monica, already home to excellent spirit stores from Wine Expo down to Davey Jones Locker. Neighbors are displeased at thoughts of a big box behemoth landing on their block and are standing up for the area’s present wine sellers.The new BevMo! would take over 10,500-square feet of space sacrificed by a CVS store at Wilshire and Centinela.
