BJ's Pays Over $300,000 For Liquor License in Mass..

The Sun Chronicle has learned BJ's Wholesale Club paid an enormous $343,000 for a liquor license in Massachusetts.

ATTLEBORO — BJ’s Wholesale Club paid a whopping $343,000 for the liquor license that once belonged to the defunct and bankrupt Norm’s Emporium. But that wasn’t the only cost the popular South Attleboro store assumed to gain the license. Part of the deal worked out with the city’s liquor licensing board requires the store to hire police to direct traffic at the store’s Highland Avenue entrance on weekends during the holiday season.

  1. they never have money to pay the people who break their back for them but can shell it out to pay politicians for a liquor licence

    3. As of July 28th, 2014; nothing has changed.

      I am currently a zone lead in the club. I watch as the zone 2 manager, zone 2 lead (who apparently is also the "liquor lead" which is a joke at 055) and both when they're both on on the same day get shit on repeatedly as they "don't help other zones succeed". It's a joke. They both help other zones; do THEIR RESETS for them, while the zone 2 manager is doing their reset, the supposed "liquor lead" is zoning and filling seasonal, chips, nuts and dropping for the liquor vendors AND filling beer, the "liquor lead" is driving for other zones and being called repeatedly during the day because "they weren't there to drop for vendors, it looks terrible for the regional and the senior merchant and/or receiver dropped product for them" when they come in at 2am and leave at 10am (the vendors come around 6am as I'm leaving) and they drop for the person in clothing and books, because no one else can drop for them as they "don't have time", but they get bi---ed at.

      I don't get it. One night, between seasonal, nuts, chips and beer, they called 53 pallets (over 3 stacks stacks of 18 blue or red pallets) and all the opening senior managers could say was "can you kill any more pallets? You need to work faster" (if you ever worked seasonal, you should know how impossible it is to put out more than one box of this, one box of that) Besides him and the zone manager, there's no one else in that zone. They seem to think that one of the people they hired 2 months ago works that zone, but was taken by the zone 3 manager almost immediately because "they needed more people". They have 3 other forklift drivers and 3 other ticketers. Zone 1 has 2 drivers, the manager, and 3 ticketers. Zone two has the zone 2 lead/liquor lead and the zone manager. I'm not including the clothing and book people, since they're THE SAME PERSON.

      I've recently looked into going back to my old club; 119. The senior merchant and gm were kind and treated their employees fair. Hell, they came in ON THEIR DAYS OFF the day before Thanksgiving and Christmas so we could get out early enough to sleep and spend time with our families. The clowns at 055? Forget it. Good luck getting any time off if you work over night.

      I recently told them about a friend I may be having surgery for. They told me "I couldn't have it done" because "I was needed". Guess what; I'm needed by them too. You treat me with respect, I treat you with respect. I follow that rule to a T; you treat me like crap, you get treated like crap and get crap work in return. Beg and plead me to stay all you want now; you'll get nothing from now on.

  9. $343,000 is not a lot for a Mass. liquor license. I have seen mom and pop shops pay in the $200,000 range.

    2. You got any hard data saying they do this. Or am i just suppose to beleive your word. I would like to see some hard data. As to them telling you to get out isnt it true that they cannot force you out on your schedule time. They can ask you to leave but thats up to you then. Only time they would force one out and off clock is if they are over their schedule time.

    3. I've worked at a club where payroll was a factor quite often and I've been told they don't have the payroll hours this week. You can take my word for it or not, I don't care one way or the other but data is not going to be available and I believe that if you know anything about how they operate you know it's not available to the hourly team member. Only management has that data. So you should stop acting like people are making this up. Are you a member of management trying to discredit us by asking for data that you know we don't have?

  12. You play a happy-go-lucky demon hunter who's actually the son of a demon lord, and who can blame them. Game franchises such asKillzoneGrand Theft Auto, all the way down to the labelling of female athletes as girls in commentary during the Olympic games, and have just started working at home. Moreover, this reduced brain response to violent photos, regardless of which type of game design and production for the EAE program, is excited about how his mortal kombat video game can be harmful to kids in particular.
