Berkeley Safeway Loses License to Sell Alcohol After Selling to Minors

BERKELEY (CBS SF/BCN) -- California Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control suspended a Safeway's license in Berkeley last week after reportedly selling alcohol to minors.

The state posted a 45-day notice of suspension on Jan. 21 at the Safeway store located at 1444 Shattuck Place after selling alcohol to minors three times within a two-week period.

The store cannot resume alcohol sales until the suspension is over.

The store's ABC license will also be on probation for a one-year period and if another violation occurs during that one-year period, then further disciplinary action will be taken, according to the department.
