I was talking to a person who was going to build himself a buisiness selling alchohol. The plot he picked out was good, right in the middle of a high commerce area; next to walmart, and sharing a side street bringing walmart customers to where a new Fry's Electronics store was moving in. Everything seemed prepped, he had already bought the land and was about to apply for all the permits needed to build. Then I noticed a store pop up right across the street; a package store. It was just a rented space, very small... but it was too close to the lot of land and I knew it. I told this guy that this new store was to close for him to build and get a liquour licenses and he seemed momentarily worried. I showed him the building across the street and he said, "No worries. They are small and I will outcompete them" Sure enough, the store he build was huge, it stood just as tall as walmart, with about enough space for 100 tennis fans to watch two courts being played at once. But this great building can't sell alcohol, now that it can't get a permit (for the reason I highlighted earlier) so they seem pretty fucked.

Why does the vicinity of a nearby building prevent him from getting a liqour license?

You can't get the license to sell booze withing 1000 feet of another place. But we are talking retail here. I'm pretty sure Macoroni grill and the italian resturant right next door to it will both be serving table wines.

This guy probably could make some great money if he could. I wish him the best of luck...

He invested all this money into this and wasn't aware or ignored the zoning laws? Tell your friend I got a great investment idea for him. :grin: :grin:
