Liquor Store License Applicant Discusses Background

Heather Weaver hopes to be the first liquor store licensee in Dacula.

In 2012, Russ and Heather Weaver set out to convince Dacula voters of the benefits a package store might provide for the city.

The Weavers launched a petition drive and, after months of going door to door, collected enough signatures to allow the question of whether a not Dacula should allow liquor stores to go before the voters.

The voters said yes by an overwhelming 181 to 76 margin.

As a result, the city amended its alcohol ordinance and is now in the process of .

Heather Weaver is one of those interested parties. Watch the video for details about Weaver's background and business aspirations.

This is such a wonderful opportunity for the local community! I am so glad that the Weaver’s have invested so much time and effort to finally bring a liquor store here in Dacula. It will be so convenient to finally have a store here instead of driving 25 minutes away. I am pleased to hear it will be a family run store. I hope to welcome you both into our community!!

It's so rare these days to hear of a company that focuses so much on customer service and family values. I would welcome this business to my community. I have visited the Madison Bottle Shop and it is a very well run establishment with lots of high end choices in everything from wines, craft beers, liquors, liqueurs and even cigars. It would be an honor to have an upscale Liquor Store of this quality come to Dacula Ga. Thanks for considering our town for your business location and with the experience and knowledge to keep it classy! Kitty

Residents of Dacula would be lucky to have Russ and Heather Weaver represent the community as the owners of the first package store in the city. They were a welcome addition to the business community in Madison when the Bottle Shop opened it's doors and I am confident that folks in Dacula would feel the same.

I have friends in Madison and recently had dealings with "The Bottle Shop". I also know the Weaver's personally and truly wish they had a location in Mississippi. Great opportunity for Dacula to get a "First Class" package store with premium wines and knowledgeable staff. Congratulations on getting "The Bottle Shop" to Dacula! I guarantee, you will enjoy it!

While I am excited about a potential liquor store in Dacula - I am NOT excited about the location of Heather Weaver's store. This is literally IN MY BACKYARD. I can reach out and touch the property from my fenceline. Why build this store AWAY from the commercial business just up the street?! Why put this in the MIDDLE of residential homes?

I am ok with a liquor store coming to Dacula but as a homeowner of Aplachee Woods the Glens it will be directly behind my backdoor. It will lower our property values and we will have Mt View Association & Rabbit Hill Park be operating fully in the coming months and we also have churches & schools nearby which is not good. Please consider another land place to put the business. I think Dacula Rd would be better . We will have enough traffic with the new park and don't need more traffic in our area.
