7am booze bid
A CITY B & M store could be given permission to sell alcohol from 7am.
The Roker store, in Sunderland Gateway, has lodged a premises licence bid with Sunderland City Council.
If approved, it could sell alcohol between 7am and 10pm.
In recent weeks, B & M bosses announced plans to expand the store following customer feed- back - a plan creating 20 new jobs in the city.
As part of the works, the shop will close on Sunday, November 11, to undergo final stages of the makeover and reopen on Thursday, November 15.
Anyone who objects to the proposed alcohol licence has until Friday, November 9 to submit complaints to the council in writing.
