Waikato liquor store chain Blackbull Liquor has been given the green light to open one of their stores at 31 Islington Street in Kawerau.

Owner of the chain Harinder Mann’s application was approved and opening hours can be between 9am and 10pm daily. Many objections were raised about his application, but the authority decided they had no weight as they did not fit the criteria and the objectors did not speak at the hearings.

Mr Mann told the authority that his new liquor store will not sell party pills or legal high products.
