7-Eleven suspended from selling alcohol
A 7-Eleven store located on the 1200 block of Artesia Boulevard is prohibited from selling alcohol until March 22. The state Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control issued the suspension last Friday because the store received two violations in the past year for selling alcohol to minors. In partnership with the ABC, The Manhattan Beach, Hermosa Beach and El Segundo police departments periodically conduct “minor decoy” stings at bars, restaurants and stores in their jurisdictions.
