NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Joseph Lora got the go-ahead from the License Commission to move his store, River Street Package, to the former Lopardos Package Store location.
 
The commission granted the move quickly on Tuesday evening and credited Lora with holding his license without issues.
 
"You've got your nose clean over there, I expect the same here," said Chairman Jeffrey Polluci.
 
Real estate agent Michael Hernandez said not much will change in the store's operation. 
 
"There's not much in the change of the business, all the hours, licenses and everything are going to stay the same," he said, adding that the 1,200 square-foot space is very similar to the amount allotted at the current location after rental spaces are considered.
 
The current, and future, hours of operation are 10 a.m. to 11 p.m. Monday through Saturday and noon to 9 p.m. on Sunday.
 
Hernandez said storage will be adequate. The new location at River and Eagle streets will feature two walk-in coolers and additional storage space in the basement.
 
Earlier this month, Hernandez said the store will remain open at 177 River St. until around Dec. 16 and the new store will open in early January at a previous Planning Board meeting.
