Please sign our Petition to remove Kings Mini Market liquor license from our community. As far as documentation allows us to go Kings Mini Market has been in the community for over 20 years. In the 90’s there was numerous raids on the corner store in suspect of drug activity that was going on there. Kings Mini Market posed as a front for drug dealers, homeless people, bums, and beggars. Sad to say, but nothing has really changed for this market. Still making it living on over priced food, from residents where for most of them its too far to travel to the neighborhood grocery store. At Kings Mini Market where a Gallon of Milk cost over $5 bucks. Loaf of Break close to $4 dollars. Still selling singles of beer, and of course the Black & Milds and Blunts. Inside, like most corner stores in SE, you can find the workers only behind the bullet proof glass protecting them and the daily cash they are stripping this community of. Somehow this local beer and wine corner store, which in my opinion has never once giving any notable time nor energy, or charitable donations to the community in which they inhabits, has somehow manage to receive a liquor license from the Alcoholic Beverage Regulation Administration (ABRA). How ABRA manage to give this store a liquor license boggles me, a store who has not lived up to its own Voluntary Agreements mandated by ABRA, never calls the police about any of the crime that occurs on the corner of Talbert St. and MLK Jr. Ave, nor clean or keep the loitering away from the front of their store. The community already wanted this store to do away with its beer and wine license, but somehow with the closing of Big K Liquors down the street on MLK, has won its own liquor license. What is even worst, this store is less than a block away from 4 DC Schools, Savoy Elementary, Thurgood Marshall Academy, Howard Road Middle School Academy and Clara Muhammad School
