A new Target store opening in Chicago might become the first location to serve alcohol.
The Streeterville, Illinois, location applied for two city liquor licenses — one to sell packaged and bottled drinks and another to serve alcohol on-site, according to Crain’s Chicago.
This location will be a Target Express store, a smaller-scale shop with a pharmacy and sections for clothing, beauty goods, and sports merchandise. It will also have a Starbucks and grab-and-go food, such as sandwiches and salads.
If both licenses are approved, it is assumed that there will be a full-service bar. Some other grocery stores in Chicago already sell alcohol to drink in the store, including Mariano’s, Whole Foods Market, Standard Market, and Plum Market.
The Streeterville location is slated to open at 401 East Illinois Street in October.
