Dunwoody’s Alcohol License and Review Board voted Oct. 17 not to suspend the license of Total Wine and More after the liquor store was recently ticketed for selling alcohol to a minor.
According to minutes of the hearing, the board agreed that the licensee violated the code section and violated the terms of its license, but that “suspension of their license is not necessary.”
Total Wine and More is located at 124 Perimeter Center West.
Board members were told by Total Wine and More’s attorney that the staff has been retrained.
Six businesses total were cited in Februrary during undercover operation in which officers used an underage teenager to make attempts to purchase alcohol at the businesses.
