Super Bowl Sunday is not a way to "experiment". With the game time being 5:30 (cst) there would be a lot of last minute purchases just because people know they can stop. Unless it's every Sunday, why bother? Let every store decide whether they want to be open or not. Minnesotan's are jumping the border at $200k per month if a remember correctly to buy on Sunday? What does it really hurt. Free enterprise?

The main concern of liquor stores is the overhead cost versus sales for Sundays. Rather than opening at 9 or 10am Mon-Sat, why don't the stores open at 1 or 2pm? Or not open Monday thru Wednesday at all. Or simply not open ever, no overhead costs then.

Maybe someone in the legislature can explain why we have the Sunday ban. Since I know we would never have religion used as a basis for our laws, I have trouble understanding the ban in the first place.... Next, can we move on to car sales? There are 2 days each week that are convenient to buy a car, and you aren't allowed to on one of those days. How about laws that help consumers, rather than those that allow businesses to avoid having to make operational decisions?

Mandatory closings of liquor stores and car dealerships needs a second look. This isn't the 1800's anymore.

Oh, a slippery slope. I have an idea. Why only "protect" liquor stores? Maybe we could do grocery stores the same favor and not allow them to be open on Sundays, either.
