"Mr. Goose" might seem like a strange name for a liquor/wine retailer, until one realizes that it is the latest expansion business of the popular Big Juicy Goose restaurant chain. This 130-ping, well-stocked store is connected to a recently-opened branch of Big Juicy Goose, on the corner of ChaoFu and LongMen roads. The store's first floor features a wide range of whiskies, beers, brandies, sake and other liquors, but one of the most impressive features is the sizable wine cellar, located underground in the basement. If you're unable to get over for a shopping trip, Mr. Goose also offers a delivery service. --By Douglas Habecker, translated by Ann Lee
