The Boston Licensing Board today gave Lina Ghantous permission to start selling beer and wine at her Welcome Buddy convenience store at 4196 Washington St. in Roslindale.
At a hearing Wednesday, Ghantous's lawyer said she had gotten "numerous and frequent requests" from customers to add beer and wine to her offerings. She said she would add two beer coolers and use two shelves for wine, or about 10% of her store's floor space.
Nobody spoke against the proposal.
The board did set one condition on her license: That Ghantous notify the board in the future if she wants to expand the percentage of space in the store set aside for alcohol.
Board Chairwoman Kathleen Joyce said she had no problem with the request, but proposed the condition so that "they stay true to the floor plan and don't expand (alcohol space) without coming back to the board."
