The owner of the Susie Q. Malt Shop property in Rogers has applied for a packaged liquor license, according to the Alcoholic Beverage Control Board (ABC).
Some customers are concerned this business, considered a staple, might be replaced by a liquor store if approved.
Its application to the ABC is part of a lottery. State liquor authorities will only issue 55 liquor licenses in Benton County and its received hundreds of applications.
Susie Q. has been part of the Rogers community since 1960.
