The retail selling of alcohol on Sundays might be permitted in two Arkansas cities



Little Rock, Arkansas – Two Arkansas cities will decide whether to permit the sale of alcohol on Sundays while citizens of Arkansas consider whether to approve Issue 4, which would permit the recreational use of marijuana.

The special election will take hold in both Bentonville and Rogers in November.

The cities will permit the retail selling of alcohol on Sundays if the ballot measures pass.

At the moment, Arkansas’s counties are a mixture of wet and dry, with 34 of them being entirely dry.

This excludes the Sunday sales of alcoholic beverages in bars, restaurants, and taverns.

Supporters of the Northwest Arkansas region said that Sunday alcohol sales would increase local tax revenue.

The Benton County clerk, Betsy Harrell said, “The cities of Rogers and Bentonville both have Sunday sales questions on their ballots. That is just to allow local liquor stores to be open on Sunday. If that passes, once our elections are certified, then the cities will take the steps to get that enacted.”
