drunks, panhandlers and other dangerous people.

Sounds like most churches here in the South ;)

Maybe they could find a nice Catholic church to open up next to.

Stories like this make me hope and pray Ontario never deprivatizes their Liquor stores (The LCBO)
America looks so shiatty and slummy with a liquor store and porn shop on every damn corner.

the type of people who are drawn to this liquor store

You better check yourself before you wreck yourself

The Byrds said they will permanently close this weekend.
They said it is not financially feasible to move to another location.


Methinks the liquor store may not be the actual reason for the closure.

Crockett Blvd? Must be trying to ply the KSC traffic going and coming from work.

Note the last line:
"They said it is not financially feasible to move to another location."

You know I have a theory here. The business was failing, and they came up with a nice sob story. Check the books.

/the drunks is gonna get us all!!11!1!
 
2007-02-16 10:45:07 AM
I'm guessing they weren't making it financially and the liquor store gave them an excuse to get out of their lease.
 
2007-02-16 10:48:17 AM
Funny how we don't get those kinds of people around our liqour stores so much in Ontario. Being state-owned gives them the economic incentives to refuse to serve, whereas where liqour stores are privately owned, there's always a stash of really nasty stuff hidden somewhere because the alcoholics are good regular customers.
 
2007-02-16 10:49:34 AM
From my years of drinking experience what kind of neighborhood the liquor store is in makes a bigger difference in the clientele than the fact it is a liquor store.
 
2007-02-16 10:49:41 AM
"It is not so much the products that are sold here...but rather the type of people who are drawn to this liquor store"

Funny, that's the exact same reason I avoid Walmart at all costs.
 
2007-02-16 10:50:53 AM
Drunks don't hang out at liquor stores. They hang out the bar. At least until they're thrown into public.
 
2007-02-16 10:53:46 AM
I call bullshiat. She claims it was a *successful* business yet she's closing and not opening in a new location. Whatever. I think someones business wasn't very successful and this liquor store is a convenient excuse plus it garners her a little sympathy.

"I'm not a bad business woman... it was the liquor store's fault."
 
2007-02-16 10:58:25 AM
These people need to get a clue. I mean, sure it's Florida, but people buying alcohol at the liquor store don't care if a day care is next door or a freaking movie rental shop. It's all the same.

The liquor store I frequent has a store where old people buy old people clothes. I'd say those old fogies are in more danger than toddlers.
 
2007-02-16 11:02:24 AM
Everything in that aritcle pointed to "nothing happened yet, I dont' know WHAT kind of people will go to this store, but since alcohal is bad and evil it will SURELY attract bad and evil men"

So... she can see into da future eh?
 
2007-02-16 11:06:21 AM
sounds like the owners of the kid place were already in financial ruins and they are using the new liquor store as a scape goat.
 
2007-02-16 11:08:24 AM
All liquor stores are not created equal - if you've ever spent time around a shiatty ghetto style liquor store, you could understand the concern.

That said, it sounds probable that she was just going out of business anyway.
 
2007-02-16 11:15:31 AM
Byrd said she has found hard to prevent the liquor store from setting up shop.

In other words the rest of the community isn't as wacky as she is.
 
2007-02-16 11:16:31 AM
I don't think the owner is off base here. She was probably operating on a shoestring profit and having a liquor store next door will definitely keep some parents away from her business.

I know I wouldn't want to bring my kid to a day care center next to a liquor store.
 
2007-02-16 11:16:57 AM
WTF?

Are liquor stores such a magnet for undesirables in the U.S. ?

No such problem here, the liquor stores are state owned and controlled but you can buy beers, wines and coolers at any depanneur (convenience store) or supermarkets. (before 23:00)

I guess depanneurs do get robbed more often then other business but I'd say it has more to do with accessibility than the fact that they sell booze (besides you hear more often about cigarettes getting stollen than alcohol).

In my city the city council has to approve every liquor license and will not approve any license within a mile or so of any church, school, or daycare.
 
2007-02-16 11:17:26 AM
This would be prohibited by local ordinance in our city. I am surprised that is isn't everywhere, although I don't really think it's necessary.
 
2007-02-16 11:26:07 AM
Why would a liquor store open up next to a child care place. Do you know the types of people that attracts? Parents, kids, not the type of element I want to be around while shopping for booze.

Wormsign: I don't think the owner is off base here. She was probably operating on a shoestring profit and having a liquor store next door will definitely keep some parents away from her business.

How would that prevent a successful business from relocating?
 
2007-02-16 11:28:02 AM
To all ya Canadians there are a number of US states where liquor stores are state run. NH comes to mind and maybe PA... but there are several others. I believe it is just a tie in left over from the end of prohibition.
 
2007-02-16 11:34:17 AM
justanotherfarkinfarker

It's actually just the Ontarians who are likely to have that view of liquor sales in the US. Pretty much the rest of Canada has some version or another of privatised booze sales.

Came in here to say this very thing. If it was such a successful business, moving to another location should be her obvious choice.

And people wonder why U.S. children are the worst on that U.N Children Care List.
 
2007-02-16 11:38:27 AM
I think it's a perfect combination. Drop the kids off so you can go next door and get tanked next to some dumpster. Pick the the little rascals up and become a Florida Fark headline. Everybody wins.
 
2007-02-16 11:42:21 AM
This isn't Florida, people. If it has a LOCAL 6 tag, it's the ORLANDO area. And believe me, living in this area, IT'S JUST AS F*CKED UP AS IT SEEMS.

2007-02-16 11:43:55 AM
At least the guys who are visiting the liquor store to spend their child support money can visit their kids while they do it.
 
2007-02-16 11:45:18 AM
See if they sell forties, and hobo wine. If so, they might be right to move. If their merchandise starts with bud light and gallo sons, and then moves up, I see little to fear.

strawhat88 - Not Orlando, but Merritt Island in Brevard County, just down State Road 3 from the south gate of the Kennedy Space Center. (Right near the Beach Line)

This location is a strip center where the anchor supermarket pulled out so the rents have dropped. There is still a free standing Target across the street and the main Post Office a few doors down. Not a bad area at all, actually.

Subby seems to have a hard time differentiating between coerced behavior and free will.

Daycare people were not "forced" to do anything. They made their choice freely, but chose to blame it on externalities. Of course, there is seemingly no shortage of socialists here who want to force the liquor store to close, and will call that the "freedom to have access to safe childcare," or some other feel-good BS line.

Maybe if socialists didn't destroy the meaning of the language, they wouldn't have such a hard time with coherent thought.

In my town we have the porno store right next to the candy shop. Alot of people go into both stores when they shop there.

so....i'm guessing a passing grade in English wasn't a requirement for this particular writer?

/she has found hard...

What prevents relocation is that most business leases require you to leave almost all of your stuff behind when you leave the store you've rented. Furniture can usually go, but most leases say that any IMPROVEMENTS belong to the strip mall owner. There's a LOT of cost involved in opening up in another location; and it's a gamble that those costs would ever be recovered - ESPECIALLY if you're just breaking even right now. It's probably a LOT easier to get a job working for someone else that gambling your home on the business loans they would need to finance opening up at a new location.
