The Needham Times reports that Blanchard’s is one of several businesses that have sent in an application for alcohol licenses in Needham.

The other businesses that have turned in applications are Craft Liquors of Needham, Needham Wine & Spirits, Needham Center Wine & Spirits and Volante Farms. Owners of the Belmont-based beer store Craft Beer Cellar and Newton and Brookline-based wine store vinodivino have also indicated their desire to expand to Needham.

The town is allowed to issue up to six licenses. Selectmen may only issue three for the time being.

The Board of Selectmen will hold a public hearing with all applicants on Feb. 2.
