Dandy Oil In Clarkston, Michigan Faces 15-Day Liquor License Suspension0
A liquor license can be a valuable asset for businesses across the United States. Unfortunately, many businesses take their license for granted, until it is too late. The Dandy Oil company is facing a 15-day suspension in response to several alcohol-related violations.
The Michigan Liquor Control Commission has ordered for the license held by Dandy Oil to be suspended. The violations are linked to the company’s store located at 5465 Sashabaw Road in Clarkston. The violations involved the sale of alcohol to minors.
The Commission made its ruling during a September 21st hearing in Southfield. The commission is required to suspend or revoke a company’s license when they receive three violations in a span of 24 months. On April 21, 2016, a clerk at the store sold a 24-ounce can of Labatt’s Blue Light to a minor.
While the clerk did ask for the customer’s ID and it did state “Under 21”, the clerk completed the transaction anyway. On August 2, 2016, a clerk with the store sold a 23.5-ounce can of Mike’s Hard Black Cherry Lemonade to a minor. The clerk asked to see the decoy’s ID. When they were told they did not have it, the clerk completed the transaction anyway.
Finally, on December 13, 2016, a clerk sold another bottle of Mike’s Hard Black Cherry Lemonade to a minor without asking for an ID. The business was previously fined $8,150 and served a three-day suspension for other violations. The company’s 15-day suspension will begin on September 29, 2017 and end on October 13, 2017.
