Indiana lawmakers held a hearing Wednesday to discuss whether Sunday retail sales should be allowed.

Indiana is the last state in the U.S. that bans the sale of beer, wine and liquor on Sundays at retail stores, but proposed legislation in Indiana’s House and Senate could change that. While larger retailers want to be able to sell on Sundays, mom and pop liquor store owners say that change would put them out of business.

This week on Noon Edition, we’ll sit down with liquor industry representatives to talk about the history and future of Indiana’s “blue laws.”

    I buy almost all my alcohol at Big Red’s, and wish I could do so on Sunday at well. I think most people who go to Big Red’s go for the reasons explicated, and that won’t change on Sundays.
