Covid delayed the expansion, but in Feb 2022, they began moving and (literally) shaking the neighborhood. As of this writing, they are still weeks maybe days from opening. However, their inside signage clearly identifies refrigerators labeled "WINE" and "The COOLER Beer & Wine."

Is that a bad thing? I think so. Plenty of neighbors directly affected think so. Other Wards think so. Take this Ward 21 ordinance putting a 5-year ban on new liquor licenses (Ordinance 71045), stating:
The existence of alcoholic beverage establishments appears to contribute directly to numerous peace, health, safety and general welfare problems including loitering, littering, drug trafficking, prostitution, public drunkenness, defacement and damaging of structures, pedestrian obstructions, as well as traffic circulation, parking and noise problems on public streets and neighborhood lots. The existence of such problems creates serious impacts on the health, safety and welfare of residents of single- and multiple-family within the district, including fear for the safety of children, elderly residents and of visitors to the district. The problems also contribute to the deterioration of the neighborhood and concomitant devaluation of property and destruction of community values and quality of life.
So, we're back.
