Liquor Retailers Group Says It Will Appeal Ruling on Sam's Club Permit

March 19, 2006 - Posted at 1:05 p.m. CST

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) _ A circuit court ruling that upheld

granting of a package-store permit for a Sam's Club store planned

at Fayetteville will be appealed. That's according to the president

of the Arkansas Beverage Retailers Association, which fought the

permit before the state Alcoholic Beverage Control Board and then

filed suit in Pulaski County Circuit Court.

On March Third, Pulaski County Circuit Judge Ellen Brantly

upheld the A-B-C Board's granting of the permit.

Charles Singleton, lawyer for the group opposing the permit,

said it wasn't clear at this point whether the appeal would be

filed with the state Supreme Court or the state Court of Appeals.

But the state beverage retailer's group voted unanimously last week

to appeal Brantley's ruling.

The liquor-store group argues that Sam's Club, as a mass

retailer -- the bulk-sales stores are a division of Wal-Mart Stores

-- would be unfair competition for other liquor stores.
