Decision on Neighbor Market Package Goods Liquor License Request
Based on the updated business plans and community feedback, the 49th Ward office has decided to support Neighbor Market's request to lift the package goods liquor moratorium on Lunt from Glenwood to Ashland.
Neighbor Market plans to expand the business into the immediately adjacent storefront. This larger footprint will allow them to sell a broader selection of groceries and packaged goods. They also plan to serve a variety of prepared foods, including healthy and vegan options. They will dedicate 70% of their floor space to groceries and 30% to alcohol sales.
In return for lifting the package goods liquor moratorium, the 49th Ward office will ask that Neighbor Market submit a liquor license Plan of Operations through Business Affairs and Consumer Protection.

Neighbor Market, 1411 W. Lunt, is planning to expand the business into the immediately adjacent storefront. The larger footprint will allow them to sell a broader selection of groceries and other packaged goods items. They also will serve a variety of prepared foods, including healthy and vegan options.
Delivery drivers will be instructed to park behind the building to unload their vehicles. Deliveries will be made between 9-10 am or in the late afternoon. Neighbor Market anticipates 2-3 deliveries per week.
With the expansion of the storefront, they are seeking a package goods liquor license to sell a selection of wine and spirits. The area currently has an existing package good liquor moratorium on Lunt from Glenwood to Ashland, which would need to be lifted by ordinance in order for them to sell alcohol at the store. The overall footprint will dedicate 70% of the floor space to groceries and 30% to alcohol sales.
