CT Sunday liquor sales expected to begin by May 20

May 12, 2012 Areawide, Business 1 Comment

The legislation allows liquor permittees to sell alcohol 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sundays, as well as on the Memorial, Independence and Labor Day holidays, and on Mondays following any Christmas and New Year's Day that falls on a Sunday.

Connecticut residents may be buying alcohol on a Sunday for the first time, in this state, as soon as May 20. That’s what Gov. Dannel P. Malloy told reporters on Thursday morning (May 10) at a post-legislative session press conference.

The legislation allows liquor permittees to sell alcohol 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sundays, as well as on the Memorial, Independence and Labor Day holidays, and on Mondays following any Christmas and New Year’s Day that falls on a Sunday.

Also:

  • No one will be allowed to own more than three package stores (which is an increase from two under the old law).
  • Minimum prices will remain intact, with one exception; retailers can sell one item per month for 10 percent below the cost of acquisition.
  • Discounted items cannot be sold for less than 90 percent of the permittee’s wholesale cost.

The governor said Thursday the bill hadn’t arrived on his desk yet, but added that by early next week, he expects to receive the bill, give it a final review and sign it.

    Unfortunately, Kellie, we currently do not have a staff person to collect that information for us. Like many other small, locally-owned businesses in Connecticut, we’re on a tight budget. Hopefully, this is a service we can return to in the near future. Thank you for your support! – Brenda Sullivan, HTNP.com Editor
