There is already a liquor store directly across Foothill,closer to the high school than Walgreens, and the Shell station convenience store next to it also sells liquor, so it's hard for me to see how adding one more place that sells liquor, farther away from the high school than the other two, would be an issue at all. Presumably, the people opposed to it would be the owners of the liquor store and the Shell station.
