Target plans to sell liquor at its store on Nicollet Mall.
Target Corp. has applied for a liquor license for a separate Target Wine and Spirits store, according to an application filed with the city.
The approximately 3,600-square-foot liquor component would be located on the first floor of its flagship store at Nicollet & 9th. The liquor store would replace the department store’s restaurant.
Target recently announced a $10-million renovation to the downtown Minneapolis store. The project, set to be completed in September, will add a large grocery department with grab-and-go options on the street level, an order pickup area on the skyway level and expanded Starbucks and CVS Pharmacy locations.
A public hearing is scheduled for the March 28 meeting of the Community Development and Regulatory Services Committee.
