The liquor store chain Binny’s Beverage Depot wants to take over the former Whole Foods store at 1111 Chicago Ave. in Evanston.
Alderman Melissa Wynne, 3rd Ward, has scheduled a community meeting for 7 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 15, at Lincoln Elementary School, 910 Forest Ave., to discuss the plans.
The family-owned chain, founded in 1948 by Harold Binstein, now has 38 stores, mostly in the Chicago area.

Binny’s also has a store at 5100 W. Dempster St. in Skokie.
