DENVER (AP) - "There's a lot of people celebrating."
That's what Ron Vaugh says about the line of people outside his
Denver liquor store today.
It's the first day liquor stores can sell alcohol on Sundays
under a new Colorado law.
Vaughn says his Sunday customers see today as "a historic
occasion" in the state and so they're buying "mimosa mixings and
everything else."
Not every liquor store opened today, though. In Boulder, the
owner of Gunbarrel Liquor says he has no interest in giving up his
one day off or in taking it away from his employees. Petur
Petursson says: "You need a day to unwind and catch up with your
families." He says most of his customers don't mind and "every
other day is too hectic."
Colorado is the 35th state to allow Sunday alcohol sales at
retail stores.
