Montana becomes 44th state to allow seven-day sales, only 6 still prohibit Sunday sales

Today, Montana Governor Greg Gianforte signed HB 867 allowing the sale of distilled spirits products from state agency liquor stores on Sundays and Mondays. The Distilled Spirits Council of the United States (DISCUS) sent a letter to Governor Gianforte earlier this month urging him to sign the measure into law.

“This is great news for adult consumers in Montana who will now be able to pick up their favorite spirits products any day of the week,” said Andy Deloney, senior vice president and head of state public policy for DISCUS. “Allowing Sunday sales for distilled spirits just makes sense as most people do their shopping on the weekends. This new law will support local businesses as well as Montana consumers. We thank Governor Gianforte and the Montana Legislature for helping modernize the marketplace and allowing seven-day spirits sales.”

Only six states in the nation still ban the retail sale of distilled spirits on Sundays: Alabama, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Texas and Utah.
