A licence review of a shop in King Street, Maidenhead, has been delayed for a second time.
Drinks Superstore, also known as Kings Stores, had its licence called in for review by the Royal Borough licensing and trading standards manager Steve Johnson after a catalogue of problems including selling imported alcohol without paying excise duty and fake Jacobs Creek wine.
The future of the store was due to be discussed at a licensing panel sub committee meeting on January 5 but license holder Gurchuran Singh Sidhu asked for an adjournment because of last-minute evidence he wanted to be considered.
But at a second meeting yesterday Mr Sidhu asked for another adjournment saying he had 'problems' trying to submit evidence.
Borough licensing manager Alan Barwise told Mr Sidhu: "You've had since November 9 to produce evidence and to this date we have received nothing, I think you've had enough time to do that and this panel has been delayed long enough."
The next hearing is due to take place on February 22.
