Danvers Toy Store Gets Liquor License From State

BOSTON (CBS) – The state of Massachusetts has approved a liquor license for a toy store in Danvers.

But don’t expect to pick up a six-pack there with some Legos.

Last week, the governor signed a bill that granted a beer and wine license to the business at 13 Elm Street.

The business there is Green Elephant Toys.

“The situation was there was an Italian restaurant that was trying to lease the building we’re in now, well over a year ago,” store co-owner Andrew Schylling told WBZ NewsRadio 1030 Thursday.

“We’ve been here for about 6 or 7 months and, apparently, the governor signed off on a liquor license for this address. Come to find out, liquor licenses, they go with a specific address. They don’t go with the actual business or the business owner and they’re non-transferrable. So we’re in a pretty unique situation right now.”

That means the restaurant has to re-start the process for getting a liquor license for its new location.

    NO sounds more like someone sat on an application for a license and screwed the restaurant owners disgusted they gave up.. id also like to know how much the applicant got porked out of..

    Perhaps they should stock a few cases anyway. Give some of the little brats a can of suds and let them calm down and really see Green Elephants for a few hours.
