Three mini markets were fined $750 each by the Arizona Department of Liquor Licenses and Control last month for selling beer to underage buyers.

  • At Z Market, 2795 N. First Ave., near East Glenn Street, a clerk did not ask for ID when he sold beer to an undercover teen working with an inspector in September, according to an inspector’s report. 
  • At Corner Store, 920 E. 22nd St., near South Park Avenue, an assistant manager did not ask for ID when she sold beer to an undercover teen in September, according to an inspector’s report.
  • At Super Carniceria Del Valle, 2611 W. Drexel Road, a clerk did not ask for ID when she sold beer to one undercover teen in October. She asked a second undercover teen for ID but sold beer to him anyway, according to an inspector’s report.

Additionally, Old Times Kafe, 1485 W. Prince Road, was fined $625 by the liquor department last month. The restaurant had an expired liquor license when a worker sold beer to an undercover police officer in October, according to an inspector’s report.
