The Real Canadian Superstore is the latest Kelowna grocery outlet interested in stocking B.C. wine on its shelves.

The Canadian retail giant has applied to the city, asking to rezone the store on Baron Road to allow for the sale of wine on its shelves.

The application is seeking to have 93-square-metres of space inside the store set aside for the sale of wine.

According to a staff report, the application is in accordance with council policy.

The provincial Ministry of Transportation, which must approve any application for a business within 500 metres of a provincial highway, has granted preliminary approval.

Currently, Save On Food locations in Orchard Place and in the Mission are allowed to sell wine in stores.
