No More "Blue Laws"
Sunday was the first day without "blue laws" in Gainesville, but it didn't bring in much more green than usual. City ordinances restricting alcohol sales on Sunday were repealed last week by commissioners.
But alcohol sales weren't significant. Some say that's because word hasn't spread to patrons or even some stores and restaurants yet. Alcohol can now be sold on Sunday the same as every other day of the week.
Several Downtown businesses now plan to offer Sunday brunch because of the repeal.
