Mansfield’s Rum Runner Liquors has put in a request to make the liquor license a beer and wine only license for their new location.
Their new location, which gained selectmen approval in July for a move, is the same address that the now-defunct Mansfield Variety Store occupies, which is owned by a trust run by Rum Runner owners Joe and Mary Ann Detrolio.
Currently, the defunct convenience store is in bad disrepair, and requires many repairs and reconstruction.
Detrolio said the new location is necessary because there is no location in the area that can provide a convenience store within three miles of the Elm Street location.
The location is already zoned for commercial use, and the lot is the only portion of the area zoned in that fashion.
