SLA Orders Emergency Summary Suspension of Brooklyn Package Store

On July 2, 2013, the New York State Liquor Authority (SLA) ordered an Emergency Summary Suspension for a Brooklyn package store doing business as Liquors Galore at 1212 Avenue J in Brooklyn. Using a website to place orders, the licensee shipped nearly 11,000 boxes of liquor across the United States in violation of the laws of at least seventeen states. The licensee continued to ship alcohol directly to residents outside of New York, despite receiving numerous Cease and Desists Orders from other states. Most troubling, the licensee took absolutely no precautions to ensure that the thousands of orders shipped were not sold to minors. The licensee was charged with twelve separate violations of the Rules of the State Liquor Authority. Effective immediately, no alcohol may be sold by the licensee.
