No person except those exempt by the statutes of the state, shall sell or offer for sale, within the city, any groceries, provisions, fruits or any article of food, or any goods, wares or merchandise, unless he shall have obtained a license to do so from the Superintendent of Police. This section, however, shall not apply to occupants of stores or shops within the city. Nothing in this chapter shall be construed to prohibit, or to require a license for, the sale of merchandise of butchers, bakers, grocers or other tradesmen having an established place of business in the city. Sales at places other than at the established place of business shall not be exempt from the license requirement.
