Many local authorities have a licence register which you can view online. If they sell alcohol they must have a licence to do this. Small shops in England can open any day or hour. It would be advisable to continue reporting the issues/events to the council.
If you reported the issues on numerous occasions you could contact Anti-Social Behaviour help to request that the matter is escalated as a community trigger. The local Authority must investigate a community trigger. Further information can be found on the following website - https://asbhelp.co.uk/
You could also apply for an injunction or consider legal action for nuisance. If the matter escalates to violence or threats of violence the police should be contacted again.
I believe it would be unlikely that the Council would restrict the opening hours but may request that there is clarity when the shop is open as there doesn't appear to be clear opening hours. If the shop is a tenant you may also wish to report the problems you are having to their landlord. Kind regards, Daniel
