Wally's applies to open city centre liquor store.
UPMARKET Cardiff food store Wally's wants to expand its offering with a second city shop.
The retailer already has a wellknown deli shop in the Royal Arcade since 1981.
But a new application for a "liquor cellar" has been put forward to Cardiff council for a second shop which would only sell alcohol.
The application is for a licence to sell alcohol from a new premises in Castle Arcade.
The shop would sell craft beers, spirits and wines for people to buy alcohol to take home, but customers would be able to have samples.
The licence is for 8.30am until 5.30pm between Monday and Friday, 8.30am and 6pm on a Saturday and 10.30am to 5pm on Sundays.
During December it would be open between 8.30am and 8pm.
The application has been submitted by Steven Salamon, owner of Wally's.
In the application, he says that staff would be appropriately trained and would not be giving alcohol to customers who have bought it.
Police have not objected but have asked for CCTV to be in place and for alcohol to be served in plastic glasses on event days.
The decision about whether to grant a licence will be made by the licensing sub committee at a meeting on September 22.
