Store seeks town's only license for beer/wine

Wenham: Selectmen to continue public hearing tonight


“The thought of people potentially loitering while playing Keno and buying liquor around the corner from our home is not what we had in mind when we moved to this community,” they wrote.

The license previously belonged to the Wenham Tea House before it lapsed when the restaurant’s tenant decided not to renew the lease. At a Special Town Meeting in February, residents supported the creation of a home rule petition to seek an all-alcohol pouring license for the Wenham Tea House, which freed up the town’s only package store license.

Richdale’s application was first considered in April before it was determined that the license was specific to the teahouse and work had to be done to reassign it.

Three businesses had expressed interest in the town’s single retail license for the sale of beer and wine — Grassy Roots, Nazir’s Fine Jewelry and Gifts, and Richdale.

Richdale ended up being the only business to apply for it.
