The Chanhassen City Council will hold a public hearing tonight on whether to approve a liquor license for Target, at 851 West 78th Street.

The city staff recommends approval of the license, according to a staff report.

"State law and Chanhassen City Code do not limit the number of off-sale liquor licenses allowed in the city," states the document.

Target owns and operates over 1,380 liquor stores in the United States, with 27 in Minnesota.

The size of the proposed liquor license is 2,647 square feet and, if approved, would open the store on March 1.

Currently there are six off-sale liquor establishments.

The off-sale businesses, square footage and year approved include:

  • MGM, 6,000, 1992
  • Cheers wine & Spirits, 9,000, 1993
  • Byerly's, 3,600, 1994
  • Haskell's, 8,000, 2009
  • The Vintage, 5,000, 2012
  • Total Wine & More, 19,909, 2015

The meeting is at 7 p.m. at Chanhassen City Hall, 7700 Market Boulevard.
