The Boston Licensing Board next week considers a request from the owners of Brothers Wine and Spirits on Warren Street to close and sell their liquor license to somebody who wants to open a new liquor store in West Roxbury, just past the Dedham line.
Dimpleben Patel is proposing a 5,000-square-foot store called Town Line Liquors at 1524 VFW Parkway (northbound, just past the Firestone garage).
The store would fill a gaping hole left in West Roxbury's liquor business by the closing several years ago of 5 C's, leaving the neighborhood to somehow get by with only Gary's, Blanchards, Macy's and Dedham Line Liquors.
Still, the West Roxbury Neighborhood Council will oppose the proposal, saying the neighborhood already has enough liquor stores and that the new store could worsen traffic on that stretch of the VFW Parkway.
