A local liquor store with a reputation of selling to minors no longer has a liquor license.
KOLO 8 News told you about the Dhenshire Market last march after Reno police busted the store for sellling to minors twice in a 24 hour period.
Neighbors told us they felt unsafe because of the practce.
Yesterday during a hearing the market's liquor lillcense was revoked and the Dhenshire store hsa to have all alcohol off shelves within a week.
Matthew Jensen and attorney with the city of Reno says this has been a chronic problem, " I think the public should be thanked for their cooperation and patience as we give an even handed and deliberate enforcement of the laws. That approach ensures a the lasting protection of the public and the shop owners themselves."
Jensen says the decision to yank the store's license can be appealed.
