Columbia, SC-based The Gourmet Shop has been nominated for a “Best Of” award by The State, a local media outlet.
According to the retailer’s Facebook page, the store has been nominated for Best brunch, candy shop, lunch, sandwich shop, wine store and unique gift shop. The winners are slated to be announced on October 27
The Gourmet Shop recently celebrated its 42nd year in business. According to the store’s website, in August of 1977, Dennis Hiltner took over ownership of Saluda Avenue Wine & Liquor and That Place Party Shop.
Since then, the store has evolved into a gourmet cafe, wine shop and bakery, but also carries a selection of housewares, ranging from high-end cookware and glassware to tabletop goods. It also offers its customers a selection of cheeses and has an array of gifting options as well.
