The owner of a tech and vape store in Reading town centre has applied to sell alcohol.
Hardeep Singh, from Top Choice Gadgets, wants to sell alcohol including beer, wine and spirits from his store in Market Place.
The drinks would be sold for consumption off the premises from 8am to 11pm Monday to Sunday.
While Mr Singh has applied for the sale of alcohol in these hours, the store is currently open from 11am to 7.30pm each day.
The small store opened recently, and currently sells gadget repairs, vapes and screen protectors for phones.
Vape brands on sale include Smok, Elf Bar, Twelve Monkeys, Riot Squad, Nasty Juice and more.
Its ‘you break we fix’ service involves mobile phone, laptop and computer repairs, screen replacements and unlocking.
Additionally, Top Choice Gadgets can buy phones from customers, and sells accessories such as chargers and ear phones.
It is located left of the historic Market Way archway, which used to serve as an alternative entrance to Sainsbury’s in Broad Street.
The licensing application for Top Choice Gadgets has been submitted to Reading Borough Council.
Anyone who wants to comment on the application can do so by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org .
The deadline for representations is Monday, August 29.
