With its new liquor license in hand, Starbucks in Burr Ridge is ready to re-open Friday with a new look and a new menu that includes beer and wine.
The Burr Ridge Village Board on Monday gave its final approval to a new class of liquor license that will allow the coffee giant to add wine and beer by the glass to its offerings.
“That’s another bright spot in the village,” Mayor Gary Grasso said.
Scott Rolston, senior asset manager at Burr Ridge Village Center, called the change “a welcome addition.”
The Burr Ridge store is one of two Starbucks locations outside of the Pacific Northwest to sell alcohol. Five more Chicago area stores, in addition to Burr Ridge and Schaumburg, are being considered in the company’s new concept, Store Development Director Dean Klein said.
Alcohol sales will begin at 2 p.m. daily and continue until closing.
