Sunday Sales Net Suspension And Fines For Minnesota Liquor Store
The law is the law until it changes. For Minnesota liquor sales, there is a change coming - to allow off-sale on Sundays; that change won't take effect until July. Yesterday - in advance of that change, a Minneapolis liquor store decided to open for business anyway. Those open doors and the sales they racked up will result in a costly penalty for the business.
According to news reports, Surdyk's Liquor Store will see a $2,000 fine for the move along with a 30-day suspension. The kicker: The suspension will begin on the first day of the new state law, allowing their competition to be open on the last day of the weekend.
