INDIANAPOLIS -- Sunday was a historic day for Hoosiers as they made their way to liquor stores and other stores that sell alcohol to be some of the first to buy when the new law took effect at noon. 

Governor Eric Holcomb signed the historic bill last Wednesday to make Sunday alcohol sales legal in the state of Indiana for the first time since the 1800s. 

In the spirit of the day, Gov. Holcomb was the first in line at Goose The Market at noon on Sunday to make a purchase.

Liquor store owners had long fought adding the seventh day of sales and are taking different business approaches.

To celebrate the historic victory, Big Red Liquors chain is offering a 25 percent discount every Sunday in March on Indiana-made beer, wine and liquor.
