According to this city permit, originally filed in January, Ikram has filed for a license for her new store to allow consumption on premises-incidental activity license or as referred to by the city, a COP. WWD reported way back in May of last year, Ikram was rumored to outfit her new 10,000 to 12,000 square foot store with a cafe. If anyone needed a reminder that this is going to be one amazing shop, look no further than this Norma Reyes-issued public notice.
In order to achieve this type of license, the City of Chicago required inspections include a criminal history review, onsite inspection once the building has been constructed, health inspection, fire inspection, DOB-Special Inspection Program, and an inspection by Local Liquor Control Commission.
