Convenience store loses alcohol license

Dedham Square’s District Convenience was stripped of its alcohol license after selectmen said the store was not open for the hours agreed to by the owner. Selectmen had revoked the store’s license in October 2012 for only being open about four hours a day instead of the 12 he had agreed to, but owner Perry Makarios appealed the decision, according to Town Administrator William Keegan. The agreement called for the store to open for more hours over time, and for Makarios to report the hours to selectmen on a monthly basis. Selectmen faulted Makarios for failing to report in a timely manner. Makarios had previously told selectmen that the success of his Norwood location was taking up more time than he expected.
