The Grovetown City Council voted Monday to legalize Sunday packaged alcohol sales.

The city council last month approved an amendment to repeal the city ordinance banning packaged sales on Sundays. The amendment also states that licensed establishments can sell alcohol 12:30-11:30 p.m. Sundays.

Licensed stores can start selling packaged alcohol on Sundays as soon as this Sunday, Dec. 18.

The council is following the wishes of the voters, the majority of whom in the Nov. 8 municipal election approved a referendum to allow the sales of packaged alcohol, including beer, wine and liquor, at grocery, convenience and liquor stores on Sundays.
