Local Beverage Retailers Applaud the Governor and General Assembly

INDIANAPOLIS (Feb. 28, 2018) – The Indiana Association of Beverage Retailers Chairman Jon Sinder has released the following statement now that SEA 1, Sunday Sales, has been signed into law by Governor Eric J. Holcomb:

 

“It is time for Sunday Sales. The Indiana Association of Beverage Retailers is proud to have worked vigorously with legislators and policy-makers on behalf of our loyal customers to achieve the historic result of allowing Hoosiers to purchase alcohol for carryout on Sundays.   

 

This is a landmark piece of legislation and we are grateful for the leadership of Governor Eric Holcomb, Chairman Ron Alting and Chairman Ben Smaltz as well as each chamber’s respective leadership who were able to bring together all stakeholders to navigate the difficult legislative process.  With this result, we are confident that the long-fought legislative battles over alcohol policy are over. 

 

Indiana’s small business package liquor stores have been preparing for this outcome for months by updating work schedules and, if needed, hiring, training and licensing new employees that reach the highest standards of safety as required by Indiana law.  Neighborhood package liquor stores have been responsible merchants of alcohol products since 1933 and are ready to open our doors on Sundays for the first time.  We are eager to welcome our loyal customers.”
