Spec’s Wine, Spirits & Finer Foods In Bedford Texas

A new Spec’s liquor store is coming soon to Bedford Texas. The new store will be located on the Forest Ridge and Airport Freeway Intersection. Luby’s Cafeteria once used the same building about a decade ago and the building is now being remodeled. Spec’s was founded in Fifth Ward, Houston, Texas by Carroll B. “Spec” Jackson and Carolynn Jackson back in 1962. It will be one of many liquor stores opening in Bedford, including the new Goody Goody Liquor store just 1 min eat of this store.

Spec’s has a large selection of wines, spirits, beers and liqueurs. Some stores have fine gourmet foods.
