N. Augusta Sunday alcohol sales weeks away

  • Follow Government

Permits for Sunday alcohol sales in North Augusta are expected to take a few more weeks, according to a news release from City Administrator Todd Glover.

The South Carolina Department of Revenue is reviewing information submitted Tuesday by the city on the certified election results, the release said, and is preparing its permitting system to issue Sunday sales permits to North Augusta businesses that apply.

One permit allows Sunday sales of liquor by the drink, and another allows businesses to sell beer and wine for off-premises consumption seven days a week.

Businesses can visit the Department of Revenue Web site, www.sctax.org, for updates and information on how to apply.

Why

Why should a business have to buy a special license to sell on Sunday? Makes as much sense as a Tuesday only license. Or a Wednesday only license. The citizens of north Augusta are going to let their city council get away with this? It's price gouging, plain and simple.

The way things are going

The way things are going piecemeal with the legalization of Sunday sales in the CSRA, there should be a GPS setting for areas with and without Sunday booze.

iphone app

Riverman, I like the way you think! Let's come up with an iphone app, that maps out where it's ok to buy booze on Sunday in the CSRA. We'll be rich!! If religion can make $$$ on superstition and mythology, we can too! After all, at the end of the day, isn't that what religion does? They tell you that you're sick then they sell you the cure.
