On The Beat Industry News In Brief

Kahn’s Fine Wine & Spirits plans to open a second location in a former O’Malia Food Market at the northeast corner of 86th Street and Township Line Road.

As reported first at IBJ.com, the fine wine and microbrew specialist has bought the old supermarket space at 2342 W. 86th St. and filed an application to transfer a package-store permit.

The existing Kahn’s superstore at 5341 N. Keystone Ave. carries more than 5,000 wine varietals and more than 900 beers ranging from microbrews to domestic standbys. It also has one of the Midwest’s largest selections of scotch, liqueurs and fine spirits.

Owner Jim Arnold said he’s eager to grow his business but that it is “too early” to discuss the plans for an 86th Street location. He still must win approval for a permit transfer from the state’s Alcohol and Tobacco Commission. A hearing on the permit likely will take place in October or November.
