Carol Stream to Revisit Beer, Wine Sales at Gas Stations


Byline: Christopher Placek cplacek@dailyherald.com

Beer and wine sales soon could be allowed at gas stations in Carol Stream in response to requests from owners who say such sales could boost their bottom lines.

Village officials say the owners of three stations in town approached them about liquor sales -- one going so far as to send a check for a liquor license before learning the village board hadn't yet considered an ordinance allowing it in the first place.

Two of the stations -- a Mobil on the southwest corner of Army Trail and County Farm roads and a Shell on the southeast corner of North and Gary avenues -- are set to undergo major renovations, and their owners have said alcohol sales would be "a significant part of their proposed redevelopment," Village Manager Joe Breinig said.

The third station, a BP on the southwest corner of St. Charles and Schmale roads, originally requested the ability to sell liquor four years ago, but that request was denied by the board.

Now, village officials are considering the request again as more gas stations begin to upgrade their sales facilities as convenience stores.

"It seems like times have changed since then," said Village President Frank Saverino, who serves as the village's liquor commissioner.

Already, 10 communities in DuPage County allow liquor sales at gas stations: Burr Ridge, Elmhurst, Glen Ellyn, Hinsdale, Itasca, Oak Brook, Oakbrook Terrace, Wayne, West Chicago and Wood Dale, according to a June 2012 survey of 25 communities by the DuPage Mayors & Managers Conference.

Under the proposed Carol Stream ordinance, only beer and wine sales would be permitted at gas stations, while the sale of individual cans and or bottles would be prohibited. Sales of beer would be limited to six-packs or more.
