AN UNUSUAL business is expanding into Denbighshire following a new license.
The new business, Mobile Off License, delivers alcohol to people’s homes, the first service of its kind in Denbighshire.
The license was granted to Eugene Adams, 29, of Kinmel Bay, after he appealed the previous rejection of the service on the grounds it did not comply with the Licensing Act 2003.
In Denbighshire the Mobile Off License delivers to Kinmel Bay, Rhyl, Bodelwyddan, Prestatyn, Dyserth and St Asaph.
Eugene has now worked with North Wales Police to ensure all regulations are met.
He said: “We operate a No ID No Sale policy. The identification process is not just to prove ones age but also to prove ones identity in case of any incidents with adults purchasing alcohol for underage children - their information will be passed on to the police.
“If the driver suspects the customer to be intoxicated the driver will cancel the order and record the incident accordingly. We also have CCTV in all our delivery vehicles, and the drivers side window has metal bars on it to protect the driver as well as shatter proof glass.”
Denbighshire County Council’s licensing subcommittee agreed to issue the lisence in November after the revised plans were submitted.
Eugene recieved a high demand for his service with plenty of positive feedback from his community.
He said: “I think this is a good business for the areas, people get to have alcohol delivered to them in the comfort of their homes. It’s cheaper for those that live far away from the shops and have to get taxis to the off license and it’s safer compared to walking on the streets at night.
“I am very thankful to those that helped. There were a few other concerns about my business regarding problems involved with alcohol and we had to put a lot of measures in place to prevent such problems arising in the future.
“I strongly believe that our guidelines are the best in the country compared to other beer delivery services.,”
The service will be available seven days a week from 8pm-3.30am and delivers to Rhyl and the surrounding areas.
