Liquor licence dispute

Michael Dyson, Fish Hoek

Pick n Pay’ s concern can only be for their profits. Their Fish Hoek store is relatively small, therefore every square metre changed from provisions to alcohol will reduce their attractiveness and their ability to sell products which are in demand.

Fish Hoek houses more elderly people than average, not often addicted to alcohol, but appreciative of the convenience of the groceries and vegetables that Pick n Pay offer. If Pick n Pay is granted a liquor licence, Shoprite Checkers will surely follow with an application, which could hardly be refused. Fish Hoek is striving to improve its image, don’t tarnish it.
