Uptown Wine & Spirits' owners argued the Bottle Shop was violating a Georgia law, preventing a liquor store from being 600 feet away from any facility deemed a school; a law they believed they had to follow to open another store.
At its current location, The Bottle Shop is less than 600 feet away from the Growing Room Child Care Center.
Columbus City Attorney Clifton Fay publicly stated as this case developed, the child care center did not meet the standard to be considered a school.
