|Subject:||PA Liquor Control Board - Extension of Sunday Sales and Hours|
|I plan to introduce legislation which would amend the Liquor Code to remove the Sunday sales restriction and extend Sunday sales hours.
Currently, twenty-five percent (or about 160) stores are permitted to be open on Sundays from noon to 5:00 p.m.
My legislation would allow PLCB to open additional stores on Sundays and extend the hours for those stores from noon to 9:00 p.m. The Board would open as many stores as it deems necessary, taking into consideration consumer demand.
Based on PLCB’s estimates, the expansion of Sunday sales could generate between $10 and $15 million dollars annually in additional profits.
Please feel free to contact Anne Achenbach, of my staff, at 7-4404 or firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions regarding this proposed legislation.
Introduced as SB105
