Jacques Scott has been granted approval to open a liquor store in Savannah.
Jacques Scott Wines and Spirits liquor store will go to Countryside Shopping Village from the Red Bay Plaza.
The Liquor Licensing Board of Grand Cayman granted the application following closed deliberations yesterday.
At the quarterly meeting of the board in March, members of the Savannah/Newlands community challenged the proposed liquor store being set up in what has traditionally been a dry neighbourhood.
They said a liquor store in the district would only serve to fuel underage drinking, drink driving and subsequent fatalities.
However, applicant Peter Dutton said there is demand for a responsible liquor store in the area, and stated his intentions to be a good neighbour.
