Syracuse (WSYR-TV) – The city of Syracuse has shut down two more shops as part of its crackdown on problem corner stores.
The city targeted 10 stores in the most recent phase of the campaign.
The Stop-n-Save store on Midland Avenue was shut down on Oct. 1 for violations that included open sewers, illegal hot-water installation, illegal wiring, open electrical wiring and boxes, and no access to electric service.
The city also closed Columbus Deli on East Fayette Street – citing illegal wiring, open sewers, incorrectly wired exit signs, exit path door swing problems, a locked exit door, inoperable gas shut off, improper venting, and unsupported gas lines.
The city has conducted three rounds of unannounced inspections since it launched the campaign in August.
