Indiana, Minnesota, D.C. could soon be lone markets without Sunday alcohol retail sales

Package stores and other retail sellers of alcohol, including groceries and supermarkets, would have the option to sell on Sundays and major holidays like Memorial Day and the Fourth of July, in a legislative attempt to compete with neighboring states. [...] Expanded consumer purchases are expected to bring in a modest $5.2 million a year in additional tax revenue, when Connecticut leaves Indiana as the last state without Sunday retails sales of alcoholic beverages.

UPDATE: Article appears to be incorrect with that declaration. Added Minnesota and D.C. which apparently forbid Sunday retail sales outright as well. Several states have soft bans or strict measures around Sunday sales.

  1. Don’t forget about Minnesota Adam. We still have to drive to Wisconsin if we want beer on Sunday. Or we have to plan ahead…

  2. Tucker, My first weekend after moving to Indiana and not knowing the law I discovered my best option was to drive to Ohio on Sunday. That was 1993 and I have not failed to plan ahead since then. That said the law is plain goofy.
