Booze Corner has closed for a second time for selling booze to under age teenagers. The corner shop stopped selling alcohol voluntarily in January and then closed as a result.
But police said the shop re-opened last week and was illegally selling booze without a license.
A 38-year-old man, who was working in the shop, was arrested and given a police caution for conducting unauthorised licensable activity. PC Martin Midgley said: "Due to the vigilance and fast actions of person who reported the issue, we were able to quickly close the shop for a second time.
"We have tried to work with the shop keeper to resolve the situation but the owners have repeatedly failed to comply with the conditions of the licence."
He added: "It is extremely disappointing it has got to this stage – we have a fantastic relationship with licensees and shop owners in the town and will always do everything we can to avoid having to take such action.
"I hope the ruling sends out a clear message that the police are committed to reducing underage drinking to make Accrington a safe and enjoyable place to live, work and socialise."
In January Booze Corner's owners surrendered its licence after Police and Trading Standards officers submitted a licence review application to the council.
They had previously caught the shop on Burnley Road selling booze and tobacco to under age teenagers during test purchasing operations in 2011.
The latest action came after police extended a crackdown on alcohol-related crime across Hyndburn.
The Community Alcohol Network said yob behaviour had been slashed by over half since it was launched in June 2011 in the Peel, Barnfield and Woodnook areas or Accrington.
Paul Noone said: "I applaud the swift and robust action taken by the police on this occasion and reiterate that we will work with and support those businesses that genuinely want to comply with the law, but businesses that wilfully break the law will be pursued."
