BOURBONNAIS, IL – The Village of Bourbonnais is considering a new class of liquor license that would allow the sale of packaged liquor at gas stations and convenience stores. This decision was made after several businesses had expressed their interest in selling alcohol for years.

The proposed “P-Class” license was approved at its first reading on Monday night, which would permit gas stations and convenience stores to use 20% of their floor space to sell liquor until midnight on weekdays, with sales allowed after 6 a.m. Monday through Saturday and after 10 a.m. on Sundays.

Under the new Class P license, the sale of alcoholic beverages would be limited to its original package, unopened, and not for consumption on the licensed premises. No more than 20% of the total square footage of the premises, excluding any attached garage or car wash in the calculation of square footage, would be allocated to the display and sale of alcoholic beverages.

This class would not permit tasting of alcoholic beverages, entertainment, or video gaming on the licensed premises. The annual license fee for such licenses would be $2,500.

The second and final reading of the ordinance will be made in June. If the measure passes, Bourbonnais businesses would be able to apply for the new liquor license.
