Prepare to buy all the things.


Target has a new location opening in Chicago this fall that has applied for a liquor license allowing customers to purchase and consume wine and beer in the store. So if all the red shopping carts start to swerve suddenly, its not just a wobbly wheel.

The plan is likely part of a larger move to provide upscale offerings in its stores that can compete more directly with Whole Foods. That's all well and good, but I bet everyone could use a drink to ease the pain of navigating a busy Target on the weekend. Maneuvering through a labyrinth of screaming kids and people who block an entire aisle would be much more tolerable with a responsible amount of libations in your system.
