Local Beverage Retailers Applaud the Passage of Sunday Sales


INDIANAPOLIS (Feb. 20, 2018) – The Indiana Association of Beverage Retailers Chairman Jon Sinder has released the statement below following the passage of SB 1 Sunday Sales: 

 

“The Indiana Association of Beverage Retailers congratulates the Indiana House of Representatives for passing Senate Bill 1 on third reading.  This is the latest step in the legislative process that we hope will end with Hoosiers being able to purchase alcohol for carryout on Sunday for the first time since prohibition.  We will continue to work directly with policy makers to ensure that we achieve this result for our loyal customers. 

 

If successful, this legislation will take immediate effect once it is signed by Governor Eric Holcomb.  Indiana’s small business package liquor stores are already preparing for this eventual conclusion by updating work schedules and when necessary hiring, training, and licensing new employees that attain our strict safety standards per Indiana law.  We are excited for Sunday sales and will be ready to open our doors.”
