Fifteen Polk County Businesses Refuse to Sell to Minors During OLCC TestSalem-News.com
Salem-News.com brings you the names of the stores that sold to minors and more importantly, the list of businesses which refused to sell alcohol to minors.
(DALLAS) - Fifteen of 19 Polk County liquor businesses passed a compliance test recently by refusing to sell alcohol to a minor. Independence Police, the Oregon Liquor Control Commission and several underage volunteers conducted the operation June 16th.
These licensees sold to a minor:
Blondie`s, 186 Court St.; Thrifty Market, 105 SW Rainbow Ave.;
Boondocks, 318 Main St. N.;
Circle S Market & Deli, 1082 Monmouth St.
Servers and bartenders or licensees whose employees provide alcohol to the minor or fail to verify their age, are subject to administrative sanctions including fines or license suspensions. Store clerks who sell are cited into court and face at least a $350 fine.
`A 19-20 percent sales rate during a compliance test is under the average, but it also tells us there are still licensees who need to do a better job of training employees to check ID," said Steve Pharo, OLCC acting executive director. `Strong ID-checking policies go a long way in helping us control the serious situation we have in Oregon with underage drinking."
These businesses refused to sell to a minor:
Washington Shell, 125 SW Washington;
Bozeman`s, 962 Main St.;
Center Market, 216 SW Washington;
Courthouse Pub & Grill, 904 Main St.;
Dallas Fuel & Foodmart, 430 Main St.;
A&N Home Town Grocery, 319 N. Main St.;
Lenora`s Ghost, 114 Main St.;
Kwik Stop Market, 8190 N. Main St.;
Trails End Publick House, 1083 Monmouth St.;
Rookies Sports Pub & Eatery, 380 N. Pacific Ave.;
Monmouth Market, 417 E. Main St.;
Circle K Store, 1696 Monmouth St.;
Spoleto`s of Monmouth, 470 E. Main St.;
Neighborhood Market, 173 S. Pacific Hwy.;
Monmouth Shell, 595 E. Main St
In a compliance test, minor volunteers, age 18-20, try to buy alcohol from licensees or their employees to determine if they are properly checking identification and obeying state law prohibiting alcohol sales to anyone under 21.
The OLCC tests about 1,500 licensed liquor businesses annually.
