Local businesses refuse to sell alcohol to minors.

We would like to express public gratitude to several local retailers for their efforts in reducing underage drinking in Travelers Rest. As a member agency of the Greenville County Alcohol Enforcement Team, Officer Jennifer Stuber sent an undercover operative into several retail establishments on September 19, 2016 to attempt to purchase alcoholic beverages. To sell to this person would have been a violation of law as this person is underage. We are happy to report that nine businesses out of nine checked the operative’s ID and refused to complete the sale.

These businesses are Rite Aid, CVS, Walgreens, Dollar General, Rest Stop, Willis' ABC, Willis #2, Spinx, and Bi-Lo.

Please congratulate these businesses in their diligence in ensuring that our youth do not have easy access to alcohol in Travelers Rest.
