Mass. ‘Blue Laws’ Change To Allow Liquor Stores To Sell Alcohol 2 Hours Earlier On Sundays
Starting Sunday November 2, 2014, Massachusetts’ so-called “blue laws” will now allow liquor stores in the state to open at 10 a.m. — instead of noon — on Sundays to sell alcohol without needing to get any special permission from local authorities.
The new law creating the expanded hours for alcohol sales won approval in the waning days of this year’s legislative session. This puts the state in line with the hours allowed on Sundays in Rhode Island and Connecticut.
In New Hampshire and Vermont, doors open as early as 6 a.m. on Sundays.
