First Choice Liquor grew out of the former Quaffers brand,[2] and sits alongside Liquorland and Vintage Cellars, Wesfarmers' other liquor brands.[3] The first store was opened in May 2005 at Tooronga Village Shopping Centre in Melbourne.[4] Expansion of the chain was assisted with then owner Coles Group purchasing the Queensland-based Hedley Hotel chain and Mr Corks Liquor Group in 2006.[5] The chain comprised 93 stores as of May 2018.[6]
