7-Eleven gains liquor license

DOWNEY - The Planning Commission last week approved a liquor license for a 7-Eleven slated to take over Price's Liquor at Florence Avenue and Tecum Road.7-Eleven officials said the company will make visual improvements to the storefront, including removing outdoor newspaper racks and concrete posts in the parking lot. The company will also add greenery on the corner of the property where there are currently un-permitted parking spaces. The 7-Eleven will have minimal window signage to create a "fish bowl" effect where police officers can scan the store while driving by, company officials said. Price's Liquor had been at the location for more than 50 years, according to planning commissioner Mike Murray.
