MN Consumers First Alliance Statement on Sunday Sales Passing House Commerce and Regulatory Reform Committee

ST. PAUL, Minn. - The MN Consumers First Alliance issued the following statement regarding the passage of Sunday sales legislation from the Minnesota House of Representatives Commerce and Regulatory Reform Committee on Tuesday:

“We applaud the Representatives who listened to consumers and resisted the pressure from powerful liquor interests. The 15-4 vote was overwhelmingly clear, consumers want the convenience of shopping for wine, beer and spirits on Sundays, just like they do for other products. Passing Sunday sales to the House floor for consideration is a big step forward for the majority of Minnesota consumers. We look forward to repealing this antiquated law and joining all of our neighboring states in allowing Sunday sales.”

The MN Consumers First Alliance is a broad-based group of enlightened Minnesotans and companies that support pro-consumer policies and competition rather than protecting the liquor industry’s self-interests. Supporters of the coalition are committed to meeting and exceeding consumer expectations and to supporting competition.
