D.C. liquor store owners dubious of Sunday hours

Legislation offered this week by D.C. Councilman Jim Graham would overhaul the District’s alcohol code, including allowing Sunday liquor sales, a move being opposed for many liquor store owners, the Washington Examiner reported.

Attorney Michael Fonseca, who has specialized in representing D.C. liquor dealers for more than two decades, said most of his clients don’t welcome the change.

“These are family-owned businesses,” he said. “Historically, it’s the one day of the week that they can be off.”
