Indiana expands Sunday alcohol sales by 1 hour, courtesy of daylight saving time
Last Updated: 39 days ago
INDIANAPOLIS - Many Hoosiers will be happy to know they have an extra hour to purchase alcoholic beverages early this Sunday morning -- thanks to daylight saving time.
The Indiana Alcohol and Tobacco Commission (ATC) said alcoholic beverage sales will continue until 3 a.m. Sunday. Daylight saving time begins at 2 a.m. Sunday, meaning at 2, clocks need to be set to 1. So what normally would be 4 a.m. will, in fact, be 3 a.m., extending the time consumers can grab drinks from stores.
Indiana is preparing to “fall back” for the seventh time since the state began observing daylight saving time, but some are still fighting to change time zones. Head to our story about the debate to find out why one group thinks Indiana should be put in the Central Time Zone.
