UPDATE: They got the license.

The Boston Licensing Board decides tomorrow whether to grant an all alcohol license to Target for the new store the chain says will open July 22 at Boylston and Kilmarnock.

The four-story store will be the first East Coast CityTarget, aimed at nearby residents who arrive on foot, rather than in a car.

Target attorney Joseph Devlin said the Fenway is ideal for that, given all the residential development along Boylston. He said the neighborhood's existing liquor outlets, which includes the Boylston Star Market, have not kept pace with the demand.

Devlin said the alcoholic beverages, in a single aisle near housewares, will be aimed at people stocking up for parties or events, rather than the sort of people looking for a quick buzz. The store will not sell 40s, nips or pints, he said.

The proposal was supports by the mayor and city councilors Josh Zakim, Ayanna Pressley, Michael Flaherty, Michelle Wu and Steve Murphy. Nobody spoke in opposition.
