Giant Food Stores has submitted an application to the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board to transfer a restaurant liquor license currently held in Tredyffrin Township to the Giant store in the Shoppes in Jenners Village in Penn Township.

A public hearing to discuss the request will take place at 5 p.m. on Wednesday, April 6 at the Penn Township Municipal Building.

The transfer of the liquor license would permit the sale of beer from a restaurant on its premises, beer to go, and wine for consumption in the restaurant on the premises.

The current holder of the liquor license is Landmark 5, LLC, which is located on West Lancaster Ave. in Wayne, Pa.

In the application, Giant Food Stores stated that the restaurant will be located in a distinct area that is separate from the area selling groceries. This restaurant area would have a seating capacity of approximately 32 people. Initially, beer and other malt and brewed beverages would be sold in the restaurant area, as would meals for consumption on and off the premises. The proposal could also allow for the sale of wine for consumption on the premises at a future date.

Giant Food Stores will present the case to approve the transfer of the liquor license at the public hearing. All members of the public are allowed to attend the public hearing and voice an opinion or present evidence or other testimony regarding the application.
