Town centre off-licence under investigation

A Maidenhead town centre off-licence will have its licence called in for review for the second time by the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead on Thursday, January 5.

The Drinks Superstore in King Street, also known as Kings Stores, tested the patience of Royal Borough trading standards officers after a catalogue of problems including selling imported alcohol without paying excise duty and serving drunk customers.

The future of the store is due to be discussed by the council's licensing committee after 57 bottles of fake Jacobs Creek were found on its shelves in April.

Licence holder Gurchuran Singh Sidhu also appeared before the panel last year after police complained the shop had served underage and drunk people.

The store kept its licence but conditions were added which included better staffing and CCTV.

The panel could decide to revoke the licence if latest issues are deemed serious enough.
