Wine and roses? - Roch. florist eyes Stewartville liquor biz
Here's an interesting tidbit from an article by Laura Horihan on the Stewartville City Council Oking two liquor licenses.
For the full story, look here.
One of the applicants is in a different business in Rochester.
Here's that part of Laura's story:Thomas Weisheipl, the owner of Flowerama in Rochester, also submitted an application to sell off-sale liquor.
Weisheipl hopes to start a liquor store in the former Ambassador Liquor building.
The council revoked the liquor store's license after a series of failed alcohol compliance checks.
The approval of Weishepl's application will depend on whether he's able to lease the building from current owner Gary Johnson.
Johnson had previously been working on an agreement with Bill Heimer, who was planning to buy his remaining inventory and set up a new liquor store.
The council made it clear that only one license will be issued to the site.
"If I'm not able to get that spot, I'm not planning to do anything at all," Weisheipl said. "One person will win the race, and that's it."
