Neighbors hope city rejects liquor store license

The new owners of the Zimmer’s Liquor Store building at 4217 W. Beltline Highway are facing opposition from neighbors in the Dunn’s Marsh neighborhood even before they open a new liquor store in Zimmer’s place.

In a story from the Wisconsin State Journal, the neighborhood association is hoping the city denies a liquor license to new owners Gurpreet and Manpreet Ghuman, who also own Rocky’s Liquor on Milwaukee Street, over ongoing concerns about litter, drug dealing, illegal parking, and customers passed out in front of nearby homes.

Harvey Zimmer ran the business since 1981. His last day is Nov. 10.
