BevMo! plans new location in Santee

June 17, 2024 – Our town took a magical trip down memory lane today. The Model T Ford Club of America rolled into town for their 2024 National Tour. 

Dozens of these magnificent Model T’s lined our streets. It felt like stepping back in time.

The visitors took a stroll through our town’s rich history, from the old Lakeside Inn, the Auto Speedway route, made famous by racing legend Barney Oldfield, to our charming historic buildings and homes.

The Lakeside Historical Society opened their doors, welcoming everyone to explore the chapel, museum, Gift Shop, and the Speedway monument. It was a little slice of the past brought back to life.

Their visit was short, but the memories will last a lifetime. A huge thank you to the Model T Ford Club of America for stopping by and making the day in our hometown so special.

The Beverages & More Inc. retail store chain is planning to open a new location of its BevMo! store at 9755 Mission Gorge Road in Santee. Santee city officials said that Concord-based Beverages & More has applied for a conditional use permit allowing liquor sales in an existing 9,500-square-foot space at the Plaza De Cuyamaca shopping center. Conditions limit hours of operation, require signage prohibiting on-site alcohol consumption and the presence of unaccompanied minors, and limit sales of certain accessory items. Beverages & More operates 118 BevMo! stores in three states, selling wine, beer, spirits and related products. It currently has 10 stores in San Diego County.
