Walgreens may sell beer, wine

Elburn—Village officials have agreed to grant Walgreens a liquor license for its Elburn store, allowing for packaged beer and wine sales. The store applied for the license in January.

Under the agreement the Village Board approved on Monday, Walgreens must conduct video surveillance of the store’s premises during all of its business hours; must secure displays and coolers of beer and wine to prevent customer access during hours that the village prohibits packaged liquor sales; and must program all cash registers to not allow liquor sales except during the hours permitted by the village.

Walgreens opened last September on the north side of Route 38 at Route 47 in Elburn.
Other stores in Elburn that sell packaged liquor hold village licenses to sell beer, wine and spirits. Those are Elburn Liquors, 319 S. Main St., Valley Liquors, 151 E. Route 38, and Jewel Osco, 800 N. Main St.
