On Labor Day - ABC stores will be open. The theory is that stores and business need to be able to purchase alcohol for their business. I am loving the revenue generated from the DNC to our great city.

Is ABC not usually open on Labor day? Sorry but in FL liquor stores are open everyday, especially holidays. This is just new to me I guess

Liquor stores are closed on Sunday here. And if you go to Sunday brunch, you cannot be served a mimnos or a bloody mary before 12:00 noon.

Liquor stores in NC (along with 18 other states) are a state monopoly. They're closed on Sundays and holidays. In Florida, the stores are privatized.

I could care less if they open or not for Labor Day, but I dont see why one county would receive rights over the other 99 counties. What if the counties that rely on tourists for Labor Day want to have the business too?

I know this is for restaurants, bars to use ABC verses walk ins but shouldnt they be stocking up anyway beforehand to prepare for a big week.

The bill ironically sponsor by republican Bill Brawley so it probably will pass.
