Well, unlike a pub they wouldn't need to shut down as most of what they sell isn't alcohol. But even the big supermarkets have occasionally had licences revoked or had restrictions imposed because...

As far as I'm aware they generally use driving licences, so in principle no different to here.

I wasn't asked yesterday. In fact, I don't think any shop has ever asked me for ID. Either a misunderstanding or, as suggested above, something specific to that branch.

The OP would be renting it from the freeholder (albeit on a long lease with a nominal rent), therefore the OP putting a tenant in there would be subletting.
