The Naperville Liquor Commission voted against beer and wine licenses for mini-marts and gas stations in town at their meeting yesterday. After much discussion the commission decided granting the licenses to a few stores would disadvantage ones without it, and questioned the need for alcohol sales at gas stations. Currently no gas stations or mini-marts can sell alcohol in Naperville.
