Kahn’s Fine Wine & Spirits plans
open a second location in a former O’Malia Food Market at the northeast corner of 86th Street and Township Line Road. 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 different beers ranging from microbrews to domestic standbys. It also has one of the Midwest’s largest
of scotch, liqueurs and fine spirits. Owner Jim Arnold told IBJ he’s eager to grow his business but that it is too
to discuss the plans for an 86th Street location. He still must win approval for a permit transfer from the state’s
and Tobacco Commission. A hearing on the permit likely will take place in October or November.
