Bummer, Man: Building Owner Refuses to Sell to Bill Lynch and His Grass Gang
The Valley Breeze – exclusively, it appears – broke this on their website today.
PAWTUCKET – Owners of the TK Club are saying they’ve rejected a bid by a group of city politicians and businesspeople to purchase the building for a marijuana distribution center.
Instead they’ve unofficially accepted a separate bid from a buyer who plans to transform the old-time social club into office space.
The conglomeration of rebuffed buyers is among the 18 bidders who submitted applications last week to operate one of three legal medical marijuana compassion centers in the state. The group includes city businessman Louis Yip, owner of the China Inn in Pawtucket, Bill Lynch, former City Council member and former state Democratic Party chairman, George Kelly III, retired Pawtucket police chief and a 36-year veteran of the local police department, and Mary Bray, former City Council member and current member of the state Public Utilities Commission.
