The Lowell Sun reports that Malvis Enterprises, the group that plans to operate the store, is hopeful it can open in the next few months.
Following a May hearing of the ABCC, it was found that Khemara Kang had to begun transferring over 50 boxes of alcohol from a Burlington liquor store whose liquor license he was allowing to lapse at the end of December 2013.
In addition, Kang also spent hundreds of thousands of dollars in shipments from liquor supplies for the new store according to accounts from the ABCC hearing in the hopes of bringing those products to the still unopened Westford store.
While Kang is prohibited from operating the Cornerstone store, the license has been transferred to Visoth Nuon, a switch recently approved by the Westford Board of Selectmen and Police Department.
Company attorney Ed Hintlian told the Lowell Sun the store hopes to open this fall following additional ABCC hearings to fully transfer the store's license away from Kang's company, Lucky Liquors LLC.
"There were a whole bunch of conditions they wanted my client to comply with and they did, in my opinion as their attorney, they did everything they were supposed to do," Hintlian said to the Sun. "I'm waiting with my clients. It's a great store, a beautiful store, state-of-the-art, and it's going to be a great attribute to Westford."
UPDATE - On the morning of September 9, a sign was affixed to the window saying the store will open in February.
