In business, not in business…what is business?

  • Wednesday, October 30, 2013

The L & M Grocery on West 5th North St., Summerville, drew the attention of the Summerville Police Oct. 10, when they observed several men hanging out in front of the property.

The officer, being aware that the business did not have a business license to operate, stopped and spoke with the men outside asking them if the store was open for business. They told the officer “yes.”

The officer then went inside the store and observed several men playing pool. A woman, who stated she was the owner’s mother, told the officer that police were not allowed on the property.

The officer advised the woman that the business does not have a license. The woman walked outside with the officer and locked the door, locking in the men inside. She told the officer she was calling her daughter. The officer spoke with the daughter who told him he had no business being at her store and that Summerville Police were not allowed on her property.

As the officer was attempting to leave, the owner arrived and told him she only allows friends and family at her store.
