Small liquor store owners gird for decision on Sunday hours
February 28, 2017
Steve Burwell, who owns a Roseville liquor store that sits less than half a mile from a warehouse-style liquor retailer, isn’t yet sure if he’ll open seven days a week under the all-but-certain repeal of Minnesota’s long-standing Sunday sales ban. He said he wishes he didn’t have to decide at all.
“I’m really disappointed,” Burwell said Monday, around the same time the Minnesota Senate voted to kill the ban. “We’ve had a system that’s worked very well. They should have left it alone.”
