Before consumerism decided that not even jesus was worth the lost sales?
Some stores still stay closed so their employees can go to church and spend time with their families, Hobby Lobby and Chick Filet (?) to name a few.
I worked in the mall in high school a LONG time ago, I don't remember any stores being closed on Sundays, but the mall was only open 12-5 back then.
I frankly think it should be up to the store owner. If I want to close my (hypothetical) shop on Saturday and stay open on Sunday, government shouldn't interfere.
I don't think its government's place to make us go to church.
The law here used to be if you were open Sunday, you had to be closed another day. The worst Blue Laws I ever saw were in KCMO. You just about couldn't buy squat on Sunday. It had to be worth going on across the river to KCKS.
Yes, I remember. That was when you had to walk 5 miles uphill in the snow to get to the store, only to find out it was closed. Methuselah was still alive back then.
Here in Indiana Car Dealerships, Liquor Stores and Bars have to be closed on Sundays. The only way a bar can stay open on a Sunday if their food sales are a certain percentage to their liquor sales. (not sure of the exact figure)
So you're in the Holy Land of Indiana, eh? Extra points if you can name the book that's from. (My favorite book, btw.)
Paramus, NJ was always a nightmare. Don't know if it still is. In my area, everything's open every day...
except you can't get italian food on mondays. ;oS
all of which, for some reason, reminds me of this bit Sam Kinnison used to do about performing and winding up in dry states and being unable to get a drink.
Was pretty funny.
Car dealers here close on Saturday and open Sunday. Bars are open 7 days now I think. It was different when I was a kid so someone must've dumped the Blue Laws while I was gone in the Marines.
Doesn't matter for car dealers. Any deal they make on a weekend is suspect anyway because they can't finance you unless they finance you themselves.
I know it wasn't Jonathan Livingston Seagull........it's all an Illusion to me......
