Mohammed Husain applied for an "off-premise" retail beer and table wine license for R.A. Foods.
Commissioners tabled the issue three weeks ago.
The problem commissioners say is that R.A. Foods is located next to Greater Deliverance Outreach Ministries.
Greater Deliverance is not on the books as a church, but commissioners believe that doesn't matter.
Husain still stays positive.
“I want to do some business and if I can't get the convenience store, well basically really I don't like to sale alcohol or beer but it's apart of the business, if it's died it's okay. I may have to open up a new grocery store,” said Husain.
A city ordinance prevents the sale of alcohol within 600-feet of a church, playground, or school.
