Been to this location a few times now, off the 60 east before you get to the 215 interchange on the way down to San Diego, had meetings over here quite a bit, pretty much has the norm for this chain, all the Chimays for a fair price, Young's Double Chocolate Stout, some Flying Dog, Red Seal, Sierra Nevada Wheat and Porter, Stone Levitation, Arrogant Bastard, and IPA, Lindenmans Framboise and Peche, Karl Strauss Red Trolley and Stargazer IPA, and of courseHobgoblin, had a winter beer box with Pyramid Snow Cap, Full Sail Wassail, Alaskan Winter, etc. for fifteen bucks, inexpensive prices like usual, person at checkout was helpful when I asked for help when picking out some different wines for my mom, big spacious clean store, will most likely go back here when in the immediate area again, only store worth checking out in this part of Riverside, all the other liquor stores are pretty weak

One of if not the newest of the chain in the Inland Empire, in what appears to be Moreno Valley, but is actually the "Canyon Springs" part of Riverside (just east of the 215/60 split in Riverside/Moreno Valley). This area is recently being developed with lots of big box stores, this being one of the most recent. In fact, when I went in, I wasn't sure they were open- it had that fresh paint smell going on.
In case you don't know, Cost Plus World Market is a bazaar-type store with stuff from all over the world- for the home mostly (furniture, kitchen stuff, wall hangings, etc.), but also with food, wine, and beer from around the world. Think Pier 1 with a liquor department.
Quality is hard to pin down. This chain really isn't a beer store, it just happens to have a lot of beer (see below). I suspect a lot of it gets old, and it's sitting on open shelves under fluorescent lights, so caveat emptor. Because this one is pretty new, I expect it's still pretty good. No idea how long that will last.
Service- the store in general has decent service, but I would be hugely surprised to find anyone that knows beer. Don't expect quality help.
Selection. I counted (in a couple of stores) about 90 different beers, of which about 70 are craft beers or unusual finds (not necessarily craft beer, but oddball stuff you don't see elsewhere). This one was almost the exact same selection as the Redlands store. Not all good or excellent, but some interesting finds.
I didn't see any of their boxed sets (10 different "Craft Beers" or "Beers of the World") that give an interesting selection and make great easy gift packs for new beeradvocates in your life, but I suspect that may have been a timing thing.
