It’s bad news for NKB Food Store. The Heath Road convenience store has had its booze licence revoked for selling alcohol to an underage kid as part of a police check. It’s a good shop which has tried to introduce new products and ideas to keep trade going despite stiff local competition. Selling alcohol to minors was perhaps not the best route to boosting sales, especially given that nearby AM2PM got busted for the same thing not long ago. And, let’s be honest, that shop was rubbish to start with. The owner can appeal the decision but if the ban stands then it’s going to be tough trading for NKB without a licence. Meanwhile a certain national chain located just a few steps away, is probably quietly thinking to itself, “Every little helps”.
