INDIANA (www.incnow.tv) -- Hoosiers weighed-in today on whether or not they supported the sale of alcohol on Sundays. Indiana is the last remaining of the 50 states to have laws banning alcohol sales on Sundays.
This hot topic was discussed at a Public Policy Committee hearing Wednesday in Indianapolis. The debate rises primarily between large grocery stores, such as Kroger, and the 1,000 smaller package liquor stores in Indiana.
Grocery stores are among the group in support of lifting the ban. They claim that Sunday is the most popular day to go to the grocery store and it would provide a convenience to their customers.
On the other side of the debate, liquor stores argue that it will erode their bottom line because shoppers will pick up alcoholic beverages while they are doing their weekly grocery shopping.
The Indiana Retail Council reported that the ban costs Indiana up to $9 million in lost revenue.
