More than two years after Tennesseans voted to bring wine to grocery stores, the alcoholic beverage has cleared a new hurdle: supermarket shoppers can now buy wine on Sundays.
The lawÂ â€” along with 30 others likeÂ new requirements relating to public schools, the notification of opioid abuse and more â€”Â officially took effect Jan. 1 with the first Sunday falling on Jan. 6.
When Gov. Bill Haslam signed the bill allowing Sunday wine and liquor sales in April,Â liquor stores were allowed to immediately open seven days a week. Now grocery stores will be able to sell you wine between 10 a.m. and 11 p.m. on Sundays.
Shopping on a holiday? While the law does allowÂ alcohol sales on Labor Day, New Yearâ€™s Day and the Fourth of July,Â don't expect to leave the store with wine on Christmas, Easter and Thanksgiving.
