If you're thinking of opening your own business, here is an idea to consider. Craigslist, the national online bulletin board that offers advertisements for job openings and just about anything one might want to buy, features an interesting ad offering a liquor license for sale.
The ad doesn't mention the asking price for the license or note whether the document is attached to any specific restaurant, tavern or watering hole. Patch's email to the seller went unanswered.
The opportunity to obtain a liquor license in New Jersey is a rare one. As the ad mentions, state law, with certain exceptions, has allowed only one retail consumption license for each 3,000 of a municipality's population since 1947.
