Formal Signing Planned Later, Governor Signs Sunday Liquor Sales Measure

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) _ Gov. Dannel P. Malloy has signed into law a bill that allows retail alcohol sales on Sundays and some holidays.

Andrew Doba, a spokesman for the Democratic governor, said Malloy signed the bill on Monday. He said a more formal
announcement is planned later in the week.

Sunday retail alcohol sales will be allowed starting this coming weekend.

Under the new law, Sunday sales will be allowed only from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at package stores. Supermarkets, which already sell beer, will be able to sell beer on Sundays as well.

Besides sales on Sundays, the new law also allows alcohol sales on Memorial Day, Independence Day and Labor Day, and Mondays following any Independence Day, Christmas or New Year’s Day that fall on a Sunday.
