Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - Cashwise got the approval it has been waiting for and now will be able to build and open a liquor store near its grocery store just off 13th avenue.

The decision had been delayed because the owners of the Spirit Shop, across the street objected.

They argued the proximity of this new store could eventually wipe out its business.

Their lawyer also argued a public safety concern with two off-sale liquor stores that close.

Mike Williams- Fargo City Commissioner: “Chief Ternes is on the liquor control board and he voted to approve this, and I guess if the proximity in his opinion does not create a public safety issue I can't see a reason not to approve this.”

The commission also approved the process tonight of creating a building committee in regards to the new City Hall facility.
