A new Target store set to open in Chicago's Streeterville neighborhood is on track to become the first ever Target store to serve alcohol to customers.
A spokesperson for the Minnesota-based retailer confirmed to NBC Chicago that Target is seeking a liquor license for the store, but declined to elaborate on any future plans.
The new Streeterville location is scheduled to open in October in the former Fox & Obel store, located at 401 E. Illinois St.
The store was expected to be a TargetExpress location and is smaller than most regular Target stores.
Earlier this month, Target announced that CityTarget and TargetExpress stores across the country would be renamed as "Target" stores and be rebranded with the company's logo. The retailer noted that the Streeterville store will still be a "smaller, flexible format" store, however.
New details on the Streeterville store and pending liquor license are expected to be released in the coming weeks, the Target spokesperson said.
