Sunday alcohol sales
A Tennessee legislator says his bill that seeks to do away with Tennessee's long-standing ban on Sunday wine and liquor store sales will benefit consumers, along with grocery stores and package stores. "This is a convenience issue and an issue of making it more convenient, too, for stores that are already open, like a grocery," argues Republican Rep. Gerald McCormick. Republican Caucus Chairman Bill Ketron, is sponsoring the companion bill in the Senate. Ketron led the years-long effort to allow grocery stores and some convenience stores to sell wine. "On first glance, you'd think that people ought to be open whenever they want to be open," argues McCormick. "People are going to get the product one way or the other anyway." The bill also would allow package stores to open on Sunday to sell liquor. Liquor store owners reportedly are split on allowing Sunday sales with some stores favoring the legislation and others oppossed.
