A 99 Cents Only store in the East Bay wants to start selling bargain-priced alcohol and some neighbors are not happy.

The store on Clayton Road applied for a permit to sell beer and wine. It would be priced from 99 cents to $4.99. One shopper told us he's concerned about the kind of people such cheap booze would bring in.

"I don't really think it's really the greatest idea, especially at a dollar store, because you have some people that are coming in here at night that aren't the greatest. So it might be a little bit of a dangerous situation for some of the employees," said Concord resident Clayton Groves.

There will be a public hearing about the liquor application next month.
