Meriden stores cited for sale of alcohol to minors


MERIDEN — During a recent routine compliance check, six local businesses were cited for selling alcohol to minors.

The six were among the 31 stores checked during an operation by city police and the state Liquor Control Division on Saturday. The businesses cited are Meriden Wine and Spirits, 477 S. Broad St.; Bombom, 293 Cooke Ave.; Bani Deli, 250 W. Main St.; Beverage World, 566 W. Main St.; Aresco’s Superette, 238 Gravel St.; and Bob’s Package Store, 1426 E. Main St., according to a statement.

Three trained minors, provided by the Governor’s Prevention Partnership, also participated.

“Permitted establishments are expected to obey all provisions of the Liquor Control Act and that includes not selling or serving alcohol to anyone under the age of 21,” Consumer Protection Commissioner William Rubenstein said in a statement . “As summer presents more opportunities for youth to engage in risky behaviors such as drinking and driving, so must permittees be even more diligent in consistently checking IDs when selling or serving alcohol.”

Rubenstein said if the minors are asked for ID, they present their real identification card and tell their true age.

The stores cited will appear before the Liquor Control Commission for an administrative hearing.
