Pressure mounts for Sunday retail liquor sales in Minnesota


A group pushing for Sunday alcohol sales is intensifying its effort at the State Capitol this year, rolling out a slick new social media campaign designed to put pressure on legislators to change the law.

“Football tailgates. Relaxing on lakes. Tying up skates. These are things that Minnesotans do on Sundays,” a narrator says in one of the videos. “But buy a six-pack of beer? Heck no, for gosh sakes.”

The new “Why Not Sundays?” campaign — in the form of Facebook posts, tweets and a YouTube video with more than 50,000 views — comes after years of failed efforts by advocates and lawmakers to repeal Minnesota’s 80-year-old ban on retail Sunday liquor sales.
