PEORIA - A new gas station is making its way in to the Northwest side of Peoria, and many hope it leads to a grocery store.

Hyvee is set to open up a gas station and convenience store at the corner of Route 150 and Orange Prairie Rd.

The Peoria City Council approved a liquor license for the store at Tuesday night's meeting.

Could this mean long awaited plans to build a Hyvee grocery store in the same spot will be coming to reality?

The Peoria Zoning Commission approved plans for a grocery store next to Gordman's in the Shoppes at Grand Prairie in the Summer of 2011.

No word on if and when that will be built.
