MACON, Ga. -- For all the buzz and uncertainty that accompanied the passage of a Sunday alcohol sales law in Macon and Bibb County, the first day of such sales was unremarkable, a sampling of stores showed.

Many local liquor stores didn’t open their doors to take advantage of an extra day of business, and those that did said their traffic and sales numbers weren’t huge.

This is to be expected. It

This is to be expected. It will take a while until people get into the habit of being able to purchase whenever they want to. Pretty soon people will be at Publix, realize they need some red wine for a recipe or for a dinner they are headed to and they will be able to purchase it.

Macon is not a border town.

Macon is not a border town. Towns Like Augusta and Columbus will do good with Sunday sales. If North Augusta would change there laws they would profit like Aiken.
