The Shoreview City Council has approved an off-sale liquor license for California-based Trader Joe's, the Pioneer Press reports. A planning commission is scheduled to review a proposal for a 14,000-square-foot store on Dec. 13, but the specialty grocery chain hasn't confirmed any plans to open its first location in the northern Twin Cities metro.

Trader Joe's has seven other Minnesota locations, including Bloomington, Maple Grove, Minnetonka, Rochester, St. Louis Park, St. Paul and Woodbury.

Plans for a store in Minneapolis fell apart this summer after a City Council Zoning and Planning committee rejected the retailer’s request to open a grocery and liquor store in the Lyn-Lake neighborhood.
