Another drug store chain is trying to add alcohol sales. Walgreens tells ABC 7 it filed applications Thursday for liquor licenses.

The company plans to sell beer and wine at 18 stores in Chicago. It will begin selling liquor at stores in Niles later this month and already sells it in other areas, including Vernon Hills and North Aurora.

Walgreens had stopped selling liquor back in the 1990s.
