StrangeQ: jshine: They've tried to do this for a while in MN, but it's always failed in the past due to a combination of moralistic pearl-clutching and small stores wanting protection from competition (i.e., they don't want to be forced to staff an additional day to compete with the larger stores).Same reason a lot of older barber shops used to be closed on Mondays. They wanted at least ONE day off a week, and if the law didn't mandate a certain day, whatever day they chose to take off someone else would swoop in and stay open just to undercut them.
SquiggsIN: Call me if/when Indiana gets with the program./also think its stupid you can't buy a car on Sundays//how can a "free" market limit certain commerce transactions to only 6/7ths of the time in a given week.i want a new truck, beer, and guns at 3:16 in the morning, what's your problem?
wildcardjack: The problem is for small operators, run by their owners. Imagine if you had a retail business that worked when you could get a day off, but now you have to be open everyday now.
NightOwl2255: Here in good ol progressive Oklahoma, you can't buy anything other than 3.2 beer on Sunday. And, of course, you can only buy wine and liquor at a liquor store. And that ain't gonna change any time soon.

soupafi: I bet the people that run the liquor stores won't like this/no really
