WA Liquor and Cannabis Control Board Catches 7 Local Businesses Selling to Minors

Posted: Updated:

OLYMPIA, WA – Seven of 14 businesses failed compliance checks conducted recently by the Washington State Liquor and Cannabis Board. On October 23, 2015, officers checked 14 businesses for sales/service of alcohol or marijuana to minors.

The businesses were cited for selling alcohol and/or marijuana to investigative aides working with officers.

Compliance checks
The WSLCB and local authorities regularly conduct compliance checks of area businesses licensed to sell alcohol or marijuana. These businesses include restaurants, grocery stores, liquor stores, neighborhood markets, taverns, wine bars and marijuana retail outlets. Compliance checks are proven tools to reduce the sale of restricted products to minors.

Investigative aides assist officers with compliance checks. These individuals are from 18 to 20 years old. They must either present their true identification or none at all if asked by a clerk.


Businesses that sold alcohol or marijuana to a minor:

  1. The Bake Shop, 19705 N Griffin Rd, Prosser
  2. Brews and Cues, 104 S 2nd St, Yakima
  3. Sports Center, 214 E Yakima Ave, Yakima
  4. Kana Tasting Room, 10 S 2nd St, Yakima
  5. Red Lion, 607 E Yakima Ave, Yakima 
  6. The End Zone, 1023 N 1st St, Yakima
  7. Gasperetti's, 1013 N 1st St, Yakima


Businesses that did not sell alcohol or marijuana to a minor:

  1. Pic-A-Pop #9, 524 N 3rd Ave, Pasco
  2. Coco's Ahtanum, 1504 Ahtanum Rd, Union Gap
  3. Jackson's, 432 S 48TH Ave, Yakima

  6. Nob Hill 7-11, 1711 E Nob Hill Blvd, Yakima
  7. AM PM Nob Hill, 1801 E Nob Hill Blvd, Yakima

Enforcement officers are empowered to issue Administrative Violation Notices to businesses that fail compliance checks. Fines or temporary license suspensions can be issued depending on the severity of the infraction or the frequency with which a business has been cited.
