Boston.com reports that Some Foxborough residents already fed up with drunken rowdiness at Gillette Stadium are questioning a proposal to put a liquor superstore in the shopping center next to the New England Patriots’ home.
The proposal is to transfer the license of a downtown liquor store to a retailer who wants open a large store at Patriot Place.
Patriot Place already has 13 establishments that serve alcohol, but no package stores.
Selectman Mark Sullivan says he’s been hearing from a lot of residents but told The Sun Chronicle he won’t comment further.
Selectwoman Lorraine Brue was quoted as saying that the proposal appears to fly in the face of efforts by Police Chief Edward O’Leary’s efforts to fight drunkenness at the stadium.
