El Paso, TX (KTSM) — El Paso City Council Tuesday cleared the legal way for a Sam's Club store to be built within 300 feet of a school.
The store, which sells alcohol, will be less than 100 feet away from the Transmountain Early College High School near Diana Drive and Gateway North in Northeast El Paso.
A City ordinance prohibits the sale of alcohol within 300 feet of a church, school, commercial day care, or public hospital.
