7251 W. Lake St.

Walgreens on Lake Street may soon be able to sell hard liquor after the River Forest village board approved a request for a change in their current liquor license Monday night.

If all regulations are met, the license would change from a Class 4A to a Class 4, which would allow the store at 7251 W. Lake St. to sell spirits in addition to beer and wine. Sales would be allowed from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. and the annual license fee of $4,000 would not change.

Currently, Jewel-Osco and Dominick’s in River Forest also hold Class 4 licenses. The store said in their request that space for beer, wine and spirits would be less than 5 percent of total store space.
