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.
