Bill to expand wine, liquor sales to Sundays in Tennessee

News

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – A bill to expand the sales of wine to Sundays is making its way through the Tennessee legislature.

Under current law, both grocery stores and liquor stores are not allowed to sell wine and liquor on major holidays and between 11 p.m. Saturday and 8 a.m. Monday.

The bill, which is sponsored by Rep. Gerald McCormick and Sen. Bill Ketron, would align hours of liquor and wine sales with beer sales.POLL: Should Tennesseans be able to purchase wine or liquor on Sundays?
