Those corner store rules seem really dumb.

1. Restrictions on hours that don't exist for basically any other business (except places that sell alcohol).
2. Restrictions on location that amount to the city basically pre-choosing where your business can be.
3. On top of that you can't be too close to an already existing commercial zone. Some of these zones are literally about a block long. As if people who live close to these blocks are especially burdened and have no refuge anywhere else in the city to get away from the presence of a new convenience store.
