Comments: After I arrived at the business I saw two male patrons exit the vehicle and enter the business not wearing a mask. A few minutes later another patron who had been sitting in his truck went back into the business to pickup his order and he was not wearing a mask as well. After five minutes passed, I went into the business and all three patrons were standing around the counter area without a mask on.

This check was listed as a “follow up” check following a previous failed inspection earlier performed by ABC. The check took place on November 30 at 11:24 a.m.

The State of Arkansas will release reports each Monday. will share the reports each week as the become available.

NOTE: Two businesses listed, Creamland and The Wild Hog, have not been open for business, but are listed on the “pass” list.
