I'm still working on details for a client and a question has come up. I'm going to ask the California ABC, but my experience with calling them for info suggests that it may take some time to get a knowledgeable response. So.................. if anyone has any experience with this it may help me navigate these waters more quickly.
The question is this: Type 21 (General OffSale) license is held in a corporate name and the physical retail shop is listed as the Business Name (DBA) on the license. If the corporation wants to do online sales, conducted through the retail shop space, can it add a second DBA to the license which would be the online store's name (different from the retail space DBA)?? Secondarily, if that is not allowed, can it use it's corporate name for the online business or does it have to use the DBA for both businesses? ............. Or get a separate license for online sales (not really desirable).
