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 April 3 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 thirteen businesses out of fifteen checked the operative’s ID and refused to complete the sale.  These businesses are Rite Aid, Molinas, Walmart, CVS, Walgreens, Dollar General, Whistle Stop, Shortfields, Rest Stop, Willis #2, Willis ABC, Spinx, and Pizza House.

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