Approval to sell beer at the GetGo store on Frankstown Road may hinge on whether it is within 300 feet of the Hebron United Presbyterian Church property.

The Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board will host a public hearing March 14 about GetGo’s license transfer request to allow it to sell beer and wine at its 10525 Frankstown Road location in Penn Hills.

A Feb. 7 public hearing was canceled.

Giant Eagle, which operates the GetGo chain of convenience stores and gas stations, applied for a license transfer from a former business in North Versailles a year ago. It withdrew that request in March because some Penn Hills council members said they were against selling alcoholic beverages at that store.

Giant Eagle’s second request came in April, when it applied for a license from the former Vincent’s Pizza Park on Frankstown Road. Since the license would be transferred within the municipality, the company does not have to seek approval from the council before proceeding, LCB spokesman Shawn Kelly said.

Hebron United Presbyterian Church filed a protest with the LCB in May, prompting a public hearing.

It will take place at 12 p.m. at the Penn Hills office of the LCB, 158 Purity Road, in the conference room. Kelly said audio and video recording of the meeting is prohibited.
