Hoosiers take advantage of first Sunday alcohol sales


The wait is over as Sunday marks the first Sunday in Indiana state history alcohol is being sold, and people in the Tri-State were taking advantage of it. 

Ryan Wheat says, “Coming down here and never being able to be sold I was starting to get used to it now I got to get used to that I it I can buy it.”

“It’s super convenient not having to cross a state border to get it,” Kim Wyatt says. 

Last week Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb signed the bill that made carryout alcohol sales legal in Indiana. 

“It’s just exciting so we thought since it’s the first Sunday that you can buy alcohol that we’d come and do it to be a part of history,” Wyatt says. 

Liquor stores across Evansville had a constant flow of people celebrating the milestone, taking advantage of the day many have been waiting for. 

Varsity Liquors employee Joe Mutschle says,  “We’re excited for it all around to happen we really are if the public wants it to happen we’ll take it on.”
