Convenience tries to get new liquor license

February 7, 2006

Albany- A busy Albany convenience store that lost its alcohol license is trying to get it back. The city commission yanked Bald Eagle Food Store's license after clerks got caught selling alcohol to underaged buyers four times.

Owner Jimmy Kerfoot says the store is for sale, but he also considered leasing the Ledo Road location to his daughter. If that's the case, D.A. Ken Hodges says the suspension still applies.

"I understand they have sent a family member of the current owner in to reapply and they've been told by the marshal's office that won't do," said Ken Hodges, District Attorney.

In some cities, the license is attached to the business so even if it's sold, the suspension still applies. That's not the case in Albany. Kerfoot says the clerks who sold alcohol illegally were fired.
