Senate Passes Bill Allowing Sunday Liquor Sales
Grocery and convenience store owners counter that it would slash their sales of low-strength 3.2 beer. They note that the lion's share of 3.2 percent alcohol sales occur on Sunday, when liquor stores are shut. "We are very thankful to the governor that he wants to discuss this," said Grier Bailey, manager of government affairs for the Colorado Convenience Store Association. "We're seriously concerned about the impact on the 3.2 market."One possible solution: Allow grocery stores and convenience stores to sell full-strength beer and wine. That proposal, however, doesn't sit well with liquor store owners who say then the convenience and grocery stores would put them out of business. Predictions, anyone? I think Gov. Ritter will come down on the side of consumers and their convenience and sign the bill.
