Request for new liquor store meets opposition



Washington County liquor officials will decide within the next 30 days whether to allow a liquor store to open on Frederick Street in Hagerstown.

On Wednesday, Paula Prak of Frederick, Md., told the Board of License Commissioners for Washington County, known as the liquor board, she wanted to open a liquor store called Lucky Unity at 640 Frederick St.

Several liquor store owners spoke against the request, saying another liquor store in that area would hurt their livelihoods.

The liquor board agreed to inform Prak of its decision within 30 days.
