Willy Street Co-Op East hopes to start selling beer, wine, cider

A local grocery business is hoping to sell alcohol at one of its locations

Willy Street Co-op East on Williamson Street has applied for a liquor license so it can sell beer, wine and cider.

The store has received approval from the city’s Alcohol License Review Committee. The City Council is expected to review it by the end of this month. The business’ west side store has a wine and beer area already.

Brandon Smith, from Willy Street Co-Op, said he wants the store to be a one-stop shop for customers.

“You can get beer, wine, and cider at almost every grocery store in Madison — I think every grocery store — we just want to join that group,” he said.

Smith said alcohol hasn’t been sold at the location for a couple of decades.
