KENDALLVILLE, Ind. (WFFT) - Liquor stores across Indiana were busy most of Sunday.

It was the first day people could buy carryout alcohol on a Sunday in Indiana.

Governor Eric Holcomb signed the new law this week allowing Sunday sales from noon until 8 p.m.

There was a steady stream of people buying beer and liquor at House of Spirits in Kendallville Sunday.

"Just because it's the first, and there's not too many times you have the chance to the first opportunity to do something. That's the main reason," said customer Travis Grocock.

"They've got a receipt, they're saying, because they want to prove they were here. There was one guy that said 'Hey this might be worth something someday,'" said House of Spirits manager Emily Hicks.

The last time Sunday sales were legal in Indiana was back in the 1800s.
