Gov. Dan Malloy has signed a bill allowing Sunday sales. Alcohol can now be sold from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sundays and on Memorial Day, Independence Day and Labor Day. 

“Our current laws have cost Connecticut businesses millions of dollars as consumers have flocked over our borders in search of more convenient hours and lower prices," Malloy said in a statement when the bill passed the state Legislature earlier this month. 

One area wine shop, Horseneck Wine in Greenwich, was already planning a party to celebrate. The store says it will be open from noon to 5 p.m. this Sunday.

Maybe Silverman's will leave a jug of cider in the sun to ferment. It's sad they just use a headline generator and replace each town's name without even considering if there is actually a store selling it or not. News by search and replace.

"Alcohol Can Be Sold in Easton on Sunday"

...hahahaha I wish! I don't think there's been a liquor store in Easton since the 19th century or Pre-Prohibition. Though I guess its nice we can finally buy in neighboring towns on Sunday.

Why 10 to 5 instead of the regular hours? CT has a very big issue with free enterprise and freedom in general. Why not address the silly unreasonable Sunday hunting ban at the same time? That ban definately costs us alot of money and hurts our attempts at keeping the deer herd under control.
Our state needs to recognize that freedom & equality have nothing to do with popularity & often the people against free enterprise or equality have very little grasp on why their views are silly.
