Question – Do I need a salvage permit from the state of IL. and how much are they and where do I get them if needed?

Our Answer – You won’t need any additional business licenses or permits in Illinois over what you need for a traditional grocery store (sales tax permit and possibly a local license like a retailers/occupational license).

There are some USDA guidelines that regulate how far past expiration you can sell food items, so you should be aware of those too.
