  1. Another incident at Pine and GR? Maybe it’s time for the liquor store to close up shop. I can’t imagine sales are good enough to continue to operate under these condtions.

  2. Debatable…
    ‘Twas only a suggestion. I guess getting forcibly locked into one’s own store isn’t enough of a motivator. Maybe they’re holding out for the wave of gentrification to make its way down into the 4th ward.
