Tewksbury Liquor Stores To Get A Sunday Boost

Jul 27, 2014 09:31PM ● By State House News
Gov. Deval Patrick on Wednesday signed a bill allowing retail liquor stores to start selling alcohol at 10 a.m. on Sunday instead of noon.
The legislation (H 228) was approved by the House in March and passed the Senate last week.
Rep. Elizabeth Poirier (R-North Attleborough), one of the bill�s supporters, said in March that the earlier start time will provide an economic boost, helping game-day tailgaters and Massachusetts retailers who are near the borders of Rhode Island and New Hampshire. Liquor sales were allowed statewide on Sundays starting in November 2003.
A Patrick spokeswoman said the bill did not include an emergency preamble and will therefore take effect in 90 days.
