Gee's Market is located on the southeast corner of Warder Street and Otis Place.

Gee’s Market is located on the southeast corner of Warder Street and Otis Place.

Readers may recall that on February 22nd, officers with the Third Police District made a significant seizure of 50 pounds of KHAT as well as several cartons of cigarettes not authorized to be sold in the District of Columbia at Gee’s Market (3583 Warder Street, NW).

As a follow up, late yesterday MPD’s Commander Kimberly Chisley-Missouri sent out an email that informed the community that due to MPD’s efforts working with other DC Government agencies, the business license of Gee’s Market was revoked earlier in the day. Her email continued: “There has been several community complaints regarding this establishment and we will continue to work with our partnering agencies as this case makes its way through the judicial process.”

In related news, at the March 13th ANC 1A meeting, the Commissioners voted unanimously to request that Gee’s liquor license be revoked. This request was made due to the business’s history of infractions and its location across the street form both an elementary school and recreation center.

    A few years ago they were selling beer without a license and they were caught selling to minors, so loosing their business license is over due.

    Kent please claiffy..has the license actually been revoked by ABRA/DCRA or just a request from the ANC for the license to be revoked by these agencies? Either way I hope this puts them out of business!

    They were open this weekend, so I am assuming that even though the licences was revoked there time frame that it will continue operating?
