ENFIELD, Conn. (AP) – Gov. Dannel P. Malloy is going to Enfield, a town that borders Massachusetts, for a ceremony marking the new law that allows retail alcohol sales in Connecticut on Sundays.
The Democratic governor is scheduled to hold a mock bill-signing ceremony on Thursday afternoon at the Enfield Town Hall.
Malloy actually signed the bill Monday. It will be effective starting this coming weekend.
Under the new law, Sunday sales will be allowed 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.
