Peru business has liquor license revoked

Posted by wlpo on February 28, 2012

You would hope that nobody would sell your 19 year old son a case of beer or your 20 year old daughter a bottle of flavored vodka.  And to make sure that doesn’t happen police often test local businesses.  When the businesses fail the test they’re supposed to be punished and in Peru a couple of stores have been.

P and P Pantry on Peoria Street will be without a liquor license starting Thursday.  Mayor Scott Harl, who is also the liquor commissioner, has revoked the store’s license after they were busted twice for selling to someone younger than 21.  They’ll also have to pay a $500 fine.

The Marathon Station on Fourth Street has also been fined $500.  They were accused of selling to someone underage once and will be without their license for two weeks starting Thursday.
