Haslam Signs Bill for Sunday Wine, Liquor Sales

Posted By on Fri, Apr 20, 2018 at 11:34 AM


"Sunday Funday" might get a little more fun now that Tennesseans can now buy liquor on Sunday.

Gov. Bill Haslam signed the bill Friday making it legal for liquor stores to be open seven day a week and for grocery stores to sell wine on Sundays. 

Extended liquor store hours begin immediately, while grocery stores won’t be able to sell wine on Sundays until January 2019.

The bill narrowly passed in the Senate last week with a 17-11 vote. One less vote and the bill would have failed.
