Decision on S.C. 9 liquor store in judge’s hands

-A A +A
By Don Worthington

COLUMBIA – A Pageland church asked an S.C. judge Tuesday to deny a permit for a liquor store on S.C. 9 because it is incompatible with the neighborhood.

The liquor-store owner disputes the church’s view, arguing that the area just outside the Pageland town limits has always been commercial.

Members of the Union Hills Missionary Baptist Church told judge Sheila Robinson of the S.C. Administrative Law Court that the area near the church and the proposed Highway 9 Liquor & Wine is primarily residential and a liquor store would affect the safety of children.
