SUMMERSIDE, P.E.I. — Miss Daisy’s Restaurant and Guest House in Summerside, P.E.I., could close if it’s owners don’t secure a liquor licence reports CBC News.
“We need a liquor licence to survive,” Judith Colford, one of the restaurant owners, is quoted as saying, by CBC News. The owners have added that, although the food business is good, the dining room needs a licence to help generate enough profit.
The owners have been trying to obtain a liquor licence for some time, and although the P.E.I. Liquor Control Commission can grant it, the city of Summerside is refusing to allow it since the restaurant is located in a residential area.
The restaurateurs are planning to petition the city with the support of the community they serve. If the action is unsuccessful, the restaurant could close. [CBC News]
