The Boston Licensing Board today approved a request from the owners of the Roslindale Variety Store, 4254 Washington St., next to PS Gourmet, to add beer and wine to their convenience-store offerings.
The store, open until 11, replaced the convenience store that used to have Mexican wrestling masks in the windows.
Board Chairwoman Kathleen Joyce moved for approval. She said no nearby residents opposed the proposal at the hearing and that opposition from some full-service liquor stores in the area was not enough to deter the plans. "It's not intended to become a full-service liquor store," she said.
