A Minnesota first: Liquor stores are legally open on a Sunday
July 3, 2017
Minnesotans rolled out of bed Sunday and, for the first time in state history, had the option of making a trip to their local liquor store.
At 11 a.m. the state ended its more than century-old ban on Sunday liquor sales, just in time for the Independence Day holiday. It joined 38 other states and the District of Columbia that now allow some form of Sunday retail alcohol sales, according to the Distilled Spirits Council of the United States (DISCUS).
