Discussion has begun for a major announcement for the city of Henderson that would allow the sale of alcohol on Sundays. The City of Henderson Tweeted yesterday that they began their first discussion of eliminating the current ordinance regarding Sunday alcohol sales. If this were to pass, it could possibly lead to growth in the sales of some stores/restaurants.

 


If this were to be passed, the city could see an influx of people from Evansville crossing the Twin Bridges on Sundays to purchase alcohol. Evansville has yet to approve the sale of alcohol on Sundays, so Henderson's approval could lead to a growth in business from Evansville folks.

Now, this would also eliminate certain restrictions that restaurants/businesses currently have to abide by in order to sell alcohol in the city. Currently, it is legal to buy alcohol on Sundays in restaurants that earn over 50 percent of their revenue from food, and have seating for 50 people and more. If this ordinance were to pass, that would no longer be a requirement.

 


Now this ordinance won't be up for vote until late January, but that doesn't mean that we can't do an early vote here. Do you think that allowing the sale of alcohol in Henderson is something that should be allowed? Why or why not?
