Report: MoCo to allow Sunday liquor sales
Liquor stores in Montgomery County will soon be opening their doors on Sundays.
The Washington Examiner reports that County Executive Isiah Leggett has issued an executive order to allow Sunday liquor sales. The order is expected to be finalized Wednesday.
County spokeswoman Donna Bigler says the plan is for Sunday sales to begin sometime this month.
Distilled spirits can only be purchased in Montgomery at two dozen county-owned stores. The county also acts as a distributor to restaurants and private stores that sell beer and wine. Those shops can open on Sundays.
Earlier this year, Councilman Mike Knapp estimated the county would make an additional $1.5 million to $2 million a year by opening its liquor stores on Sunday.
But some argue the change will hurt private shops.
