The strip mall City-Wide Liquors location, as noted by others does not have quite the same selection as the one downtown. Even so it is worth dropping in if you are going to be visiting Evil Czech’s brewpub. Besides the typical national brands you will find a good selection of regional beers from northern Indiana. Prices are reasonable although there are few deals to be had. Expect to spend about $10 for a four or six pack of Indiana beers or a bit more for most of the Three Floyd’s bombers ($12.99 or so depending on rarity).
One thing to note is that the aisles can get a bit crowded. I wouldn’t want to come here if it were too busy. Otherwise you should have no problems browsing. Parking also should be no trouble as it sits in a strip mall along a large commercial district. This wouldn’t be my first stop in the South Bend area but I would try to get back if I had enough time.

Decent selection, but for whatever reason I was having a hard time settling on something. I was hoping to score some Three Floyds and selection of that was very limited... Other than that, you can find a decent selection of imports and craft brews, both local and national.
Great selection and wonderful service. If you are looking for some hard to find brews in South Bend city wide is the place to go. This store is not as big as their downtown South Bend location but still worth a stop in.
good selection, not as good as the downtown location, but they have some stuff that the downtown location doesn’t have, so it’s worth stopping by! There is one worker who is very helpful and knows his beers and is always eager to make good recommendations. The Other workers are pretty clueless about what they have, where things are, etc. They Only do singles of 12 oz bottles on pricey 4 packs, if you’re into that sort of thing. Good store. Along with the downtown citywide, this is one of my go to locations in south bend. Worth a visit
Stopped in for a 6pack while in town. Good selection of beers. I inquired about a restaurant recommendation and I was treated like family. They grabbed the phone book and worked it for me. Nice people!
This is a great stop if you’re in the area! It’s a small-ish liquor store with a whole lot of beers crammed in there. The beer selection is excellent, but you really have to dig through the shelves to see what’s available. The staff is friendly and knowledgable. I prefer the South Bend location, but this is a good stop.
I was travelling through on business and had heard this is a must stop. Great Beer selection, Stone, Three Floyds, and many German Brews. Have alot of hard to find products that you won’t find anywhere else in the area. Very helpfull and knowledgeable staff. If coming from outside the area, bring your cooler. Alot of the product is only available cold.
This store continues to blow me away with their astounding selection, knowledgable customer service, and friendly atmosphere. City Wide seems to keep abreast of all new products and offer a wide variety of beers as well as an unmatched wine selection. I don;t even consider other local stores when I’m searching for something unique, if it isn’t here it isn’t anywhere.
