Retail alcohol sales could take place in Benton County as early as next month.

After three days of alcohol hearings in Little Rock, 39 Benton County businesses were approved for liquor permits, according to state alcohol officials.

The Arkansas Alcoholic Beverage Control division finished three days-worth of hearings Thursday to determine which Benton County businesses would be granted liquor permits. Fifty-five business owners were chosen in a random drawing last month to enter in a chance to receive liquor permits. More than 70 had applied, according to the ABC.

Thirty-nine businesses were approved over the course of the hearings, while 15 were denied for various reasons, ranging from proximity to churches to owners not showing up to the Little Rock hearings. The liquor permit application for one business, Lowell Liquor, was postponed for the next few months, according to Alcoholic Beverage Control.

During Thursday’s hearings, 17 businesses were approved for liquor permits, while five were denied.

Those approved will not be able to use their permits to sell liquor until the 30-day mandatory waiting period has passed, according to the ABC.
