Petworth Liquors Move Appears to be Off

Petworth Liquor, currently located at 3210 Georgia.

Because the issue of Petworth Liquors proposed move to 3213 Georgia has been of such importance to the community, I wanted to share some news that Commissioner Anthony Cimino shared at last night’s ANC 1A meeting. According to Commissioner Cimino, the agent for Petworth Liquors has notified him that Petworth Liquors will withdraw their application to transfer the liquor license to 3213 Georgia. They do not plan to go forward with the project.

However, at this time nothing has been filed. I will monitor the DC Register and inform the community when the withdrawal of this transfer is official.

As the transfer has not been withdrawn at this time, ANC 1A voted unanimously last night to protest the transfer of the license to 3213 Georgia. This will protect the ANC’s standing with ABRA should the request not be withdrawn.

I have no doubt that Petworth’s decision to cancel this project is a direct response to the community’s speedy organization and solid opposition.

    im thrilled at the possibility that this store will move on. Also, I’m seriously considering what kind of business might work on that corner – maybe we need a community kickstarter campaign to incentivize a good tenant…

    This is great news! After attending last night’s meeting, I also echo Kent’s sentiment that this was due to the strong community involvement. And, congrats Kent on your new position!

    This goes to show that while not required, trying to be good neighbors is key for a business to survive and expand. The owners of Petworth Liquors may have been committed to changing, but their ignorance of the problem their store created for the past many years ultimately was their downfall.
