SECTION 1. Notwithstanding the provisions of Chapter 138 of the General Laws or any other General or Special law to the contrary, there shall be no distinction between a supermarket, convenience store or package store whenever the holder of a license issued under the provisions of Section 15 of Chapter 138 is found to have been in violation of Section 34 of Chapter 138 relative to the sale of alcohol to a minor or to an intoxicated individual that results in the suspension of all commercial activity by the licensee as adjudicated by the local licensing authority in any city or town which votes to authorize the granting of licenses for the sale of all alcoholic beverages. For the purposes of this act, the suspension of commercial activity for a licensee shall mean that all commercial activity, including the sale of non-alcoholic items, within the licensed establishment shall cease for the period of the suspension.
