Haslam signs 7-day liquor sales bill

Print | Front Page | Email this story

NASHVILLE (AP) — Tennesseans will be able to buy liquor on Sunday after Gov. Bill Haslam signed a law allowing seven-day sales of wines and spirits.

The law allows liquor and wine sales every day, with the exception of Christmas, Easter and Thanksgiving. However, a provision in the new law gives liquor stores a head start on seven-day sales. Grocery stores cannot begin selling wine until January.

Some liquor stores will remain closed on Sundays if their owners decide not to open.

The law was passed a week ago despite opposition from religious conservatives. Afterward, a group of pastors denounced its passage as "despicable," and the organization's leader accused lawmakers in Tennessee's Republican-dominated Legislature of selling out to "Big Liquor."
