Buffalo Wild Wings Grill & Bar is seeking an address at the revamped West Manchester Mall.
The Minneapolis-based chain of sports bars has asked West Manchester Township for two hearings regarding the transfer of a liquor license.
Buffalo Wild Wings wants to move its liquor license from its location at 81 Wilson Ave. in Hanover, where it opened in October 2012, to the new restaurant planned for 320 Town Center Drive.
The Town Center Drive address will probably be one of the three outparcels planned at the new mall, which is expected to open in time for the Christmas shopping season, township officials said.
A $47 million redevelopment is slated for the 32-year-old West Manchester Mall, changing the look and style to an open, outdoor plaza.
Retailers have been lining up to be part of the new marketplace, and on Thursday evening township supervisors approved the request from Buffalo Wild Wings to hold two public meetings.
The township is advertising the meetings, which will be held at 7 p.m. Thursday, May 22, before the supervisors' regular monthly meeting, said Kelly Palmer, the township's assistant manager.
If the liquor license transfer is approved, it's unclear what will happen to the Hanover Buffalo Wild Wings location, which opened less than two years ago.
Calls to a company spokesman were not immediately returned.
Upon opening at the new West Manchester Town Center, it would be among several stores that have already signed on to be part of the new shopping hub: Ann Taylor Loft, Kirkland's, Kohls, Macy's, Petco, Regal Cinemas and Walmart.
The mall's anchors — Kohls, Macy's, Regal Cinemas and Walmart — will remain open during construction.
It's unclear when construction will begin.
Tony Ruggeri, co-founder of mall owners Dallas-based M&R Investors, said no firm construction dates are in place, but developers have approval from the township to begin demolition at any time.
