Juan Jaime, owner of La Hacienda de Las Americas at 24 E. Ohio St., will pay $1,000, under an order issued by Joliet Mayor Tom Giarrante, who also serves as the city's liquor commissioner.
“According to the law, all liquor licensees must
purchase their beer, wine and spirits from licensed liquor distributors,”
Giarrante said in a news release on the law violation penalty.
“Purchasing alcohol at stores such as Sam’s Club or Costco and
then reselling it in an establishment is a direct violation of the law and will
not be tolerated in Joliet.”
