Target, the superstore that somehow makes everyone prone to impulse buys, just found a new way to get us to fork over more cash: serving cocktails and selling bottles of booze.
At one store in Chicago, which is slated to open in October, customers could take a break from their shopping sprees and indulge in a drink (or three). According to Crain's Chicago, the new Windy City location applied for not one but two liquor licenses—one to sell packaged booze on its shelves and the other to serve beer, wine, and spirits from a bar inside the 24,000-square-foot space.
If given approval, it will be the only Target store to serve alcohol on-site. We're crossing our fingers that there will be a few bright red signature cocktails (think cosmopolitans, spiked strawberry lemonade ) on the menu and, of course, a nationwide roll-out of this boozy concept. Because nothing else can improve a trip to the grocery store quite like a glass of rosé, am I right?
While this is absolutely amazing, it will also probably definitely lead to more bad decisions when it comes to spending more cash. You know, like picking up yet another adorable set of salt-and-pepper shakers just because you have zero willpower once you step inside. I mean, who could say no to this cute little ceramic hedgehog? Especially while tipsy...
But I guess that's all part of the company's insanely genius (albeit evil) plan. Touché, Target.
