BJ’s Convenience store and TJ’s Package Store in Lyerly were recently issued a citation by the Georgia Department of Revenue. The store’s citations stemmed from an undercover investigation conducted by the Department of Revenue in which a minor was sold alcohol at both locations.
The Town of Lyerly discussed the citations at its work session on Tuesday of this week. Mayor Josh Wyatt said that a letter had been sent to the stores detailing the violation of the town’s ordinances.
This is the first offence for both BJ’s Store and TJ’s – the only liquor store in Chattooga County. A second offence could mean a license suspension.
