- Customers may soon be able to have happy hour while they shop at Target.

The retail chain is working to serve alcohol from a fully stocked bar in its stores.

"That is crazy," said Target customer Craig Rumbaugh.

"I don't know that it is really necessary," said Target customer Samantha Maretti.

The company plans to start at a smaller, more "city-friendly" Target store in Chicago.

Target already sells liquor for shoppers to take home, but this would be the first "consumption on premises" liquor license for Target.

Some customers said the bar would not bother them, but others did not like the idea.

"It is one thing to get your coffee lattes or what have you, [but] to get a drink and then go shopping?" said Maretti.

"Why would you want alcohol in a place that has family oriented stuff?  It's kind of silly," said Rumbaugh.

Some customers think the plan could cause a bigger problem.

"It's harder to control the underage drinking if you have got a wider variety of people," said Maretti.

Sheriff Jerry Demings said he is against the sale of liquor in supermarkets. He said it would be unnecessary expansion of alcohol that could increase underage drinking.

The first store is scheduled to begin serving this fall.
