SPANISH FORK, Utah (AP) -- Macey's grocery store is appealing their six-month suspension of their alcohol license after police caught two clerks selling to minors.

The clerks sold the beverages to underage "sting" buyers during police undercover operations in May and July at the grocery-chain's Spanish Fork store.

City documents show one of the clerks was reprimanded and demoted, while the other was fired.

The store's attorney, David Davis, has filed an appeal, which is scheduled to be heard by the City Council tomorrow.

Although the store wasn't fined because it had taken steps to prevent such sales, the suspension could cost the store thousands of dollars in beer sales.

The revocation starts October first and continues through March 31st.
