Block Beverages and More! sign now

To: City of Capitola and the California Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control

Call to Action:
Support local independent retailers of wine and spirits, local wineries, and beverage industry salespeople.

We must act now before the Beverages and More! chain is allowed to open its 82nd store here in our local area, thus moving us one giant step closer to the faceless, cookie-cutter type of community we all want to avoid.

We, the undersigned, urge the City Council to appeal the Planning Commissions recent decision to allow a Beverages and More! store at 1820 41st Avenue in Capitola. The people of Capitola must have an opportunity to speak out about this threat to the unique character of our community. We and many others like us treasure the fact that the City of Capitola has a number of independently owned and operated wine and spirits retailers, who maintain an important relationship with local wineries. We prefer to give our business to our many local independent merchants, knowing this in turn supports our local wineries and beverage salespeople, which ultimately benefits the entire community.

Capitola has a long tradition of keeping it local, supporting the businesses who personally and proudly contribute to the quality of life we all enjoy here. We need your help in our campaign to keep it local please SIGN THIS PETITION! and then forward it to any and all people who care about preserving the unique character of our community and protecting our local economy.

    The independant small business provides the community the service of knowledge of their product that the minimum wage employee at the big box store cannot. Don't allow Bevmo, and their ability to wipe out smaller competing businesses, to set up shop in Ca

    As an Aptos resident, I see no need for yet another large chain coming in and taking away our small privately owned businesses. Besides, 41st doesn't need any more traffic on it. It's already a giant parking lot marking it difficult to drive down.
