The city of Keller Planning and Zoning Commission will hear a request for the city’s first liquor store at a meeting March 24.

A Spec’s Wine, Spirits & Finer Foods is requesting a permit to occupy a lot near Keller Town Center at 100 Chandler Road, Keller.

The liquor store would be built east of Keller-Smithfield Road on 1.712 acres adjacent to Natural Grocers. According to the permit request, the building will be 10,000 square feet or greater.

Keller residents first approved sales of all types of alcohol within city limits in November 2019. Residents approved a proposition allowing alcohol sales with 70% of the vote.

City officials have estimated the potential tax benefit from alcohol sales at more than $200,000 per year.
