You will find sale items at either place to be better than list at the other. Century and Bacchus have a much more knowledgable staff, and don't try to push products that the consumer doesn't want (like Marketview tends to do). Prices for liquor is much better at Century. Bacchus is still my favorite wine and spirits shop, as they have a more personable approach, but there are some items I buy only at Century. After way too many bad experiences with pretentious, ignorant personel at Marketview, I no longer will buy from them. —JackPorcello

Prices are still the best in town on everything, but they don't have that "discount store" mentality you see at Marketview. They are giving House of Bacchus (which has been up to now first in service in my experience) a run for their money on service now! —JackPorcello
